Does this innings mean we'll see Kevin O'Brien playing for England soon?

Hilarious. Ireland beat South Africa B

Best World Cup match ever. There's not way the final will even come close to this!

What are we talking about, full member status? Kenya didn't get full member status after making the semi-finals. And Ireland are not beating much here.

Congrates Kevin, for his 1st 50 in WC

Flintoff really never did that much in the one dayers... 32 at S/R 88

Kevin O'Brien or Boyd Rankin remind you off Fred? Good estimate on the England score point4, wonder how your overall match prediction will pan out....Eng by 150 probably looking quite good considering Ireland will have to go hell for leather from ball 1. I'LL STICK WITH MY 110 RUN VICTORY TO ENG....

Group B is already looking intresting, if BANGLADESH can win a game against a top card, that will set the cat among the pigeons!

Kevin O' Brien reminds me of Flintoff.. same stature and same built.. Miss you Freddie :(

I feel one or two wickets more and England will be in a soup .. dont forget once Trott, Bell, Staruss and Peterson fell eveything was jing jing bang bang for England
