We were lucky to have a generation of players (including Eoin Morgan) that gave us occasions such as that but we allowed the team to stagnate.

BTW O'Brien scored 113 that day not 133

Kevin O'Brien brilliance leaves England stunned

Kevin O'Brien brilliance leaves England stunned
Arguably the best knock of the 2011 World Cup came from Ireland's Kevin O'Brien against England in Bangalore. Set a stiff target of 327, few expected Ireland to give England much of a fight. In the chase Ireland slipped to 106/4 in the 23rd over. Things looked to be going in England's favour but no one was braced for what was to follow. Kevin O'Brien smashed a quickfire fifty but things still looked out of reach for the Irish. However O'Brien believed and slowly made everyone else around him believe. England's confidence withered away amidst the brutal assault and O'Brien went on to register the fastest World Cup ton and was unbeaten on 133 off just 63 balls as Ireland went on to a famous win.
