O'Brien will be available for Test and T20 cricket
Ireland all-rounder Kevin O'Brien, whose century against England in a 2011 World Cup match remains the fastest hundred in the tournament's history, has quit ODIs, Cricket Ireland said Friday.
O'Brien wrote his name in the record books with a 50-ball century in Bangalore 10 years ago when Ireland beat England by three wickets, chasing down a 328-run victory target with five balls to spare.
O'Brien smashed 113, clobbering six sixes in his 63-ball blitz, in the defining knock of his ODI career.
