Profile

Younger brother of Niall, the Ireland wicketkeeper, Kevin O'Brien wrote his name into Irish cricketing lore with a magical innings against England on a balmy March evening in Bangalore. Entering the fray with his team in a perilous position chasing a mountainous 327, he smashed a 50-ball century - the fastest in World Cup history - to set up a historic three-wicket win. Though that knock made his name, O'Brien had already established himself as a competent allrounder, bowling medium pace and batting in the middle order, in limited-overs cricket at Associate level.
