O'Brien record ton stuns England, shock win to Ireland: 2011 World Cup #15 (Bangalore)

Kevin O'Brien smashed the fastest century (113) in World Cup history off just 50 balls as Ireland recorded their greatest win on cricket's biggest stage.

Ireland were struggling at 111-5 chasing England's massive 327 for eight when O'Brien delivered an astonishing display of power-hitting.

O'Brien beat the previous fastest Cup century record held by Australia's Matthew Hayden, who hit 100 off 66 balls in 2007.
