Upset in ICC World Cup: Ireland beat England

irish flag 640 300x239 Upset in ICC World Cup: Ireland beat EnglandIreland beat England by 3 wickets in a Group B match in Bangalore. Kevin O’Brien’s record century helped Ireland to hand England a humiliating three-wicket defeat with five balls remaining in their World Cup Group B match here at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium on Wednesday.

Chasing a huge total of 328 runs, Ireland set a World Cup record of achieving the highest run chase. The previous record was 313 runs made by Sri Lanka against Zimbabwe in the 1992 World Cup.

The main architect of the Ireland’s astonishing victory was Kevin O’Brien, who made his second One-day International century from only 50 balls – the fastest hundred in World Cups. He broke the record set by his own team-mate John Davison who had made hundred off 57 balls against the West Indies in 2007.

He made 113 runs off 63 balls with six sixes and 13 fours and was run out when his team needed only 11 runs from the same number of balls.

He was ably supported by Alex Cusack who made 47. Both added 162 runs for the sixth wicket partnership.

Earlier, England piled up 327 runs for the loss of seven wickets after captain Andrew Strauss won the toss.(The News)
