Windscreens O’Brien? Irishman smashes own car window with monster six

Kevin O’Brien’s biggest claim to fame is the enviable record of scoring the fastest century in Cricket World Cup history, but the Irishman’s big-hitting ways have come back to bite him.

The 36-year-old became a national hero in March 2011 when he scored a ton off just 50 balls en route to making 113 off 63. His exploits helped Ireland chase down a huge total of 327 to record a famous win over England in India.

On Thursday, however, the all-rounder proved his own worst enemy when one of his eight sixes during a Twenty20 clash soared into the parking lot of Dublin’s Pembroke Cricket Club.

After the match, O’Brien headed straight for a local dealership to repair the damage.
