Ireland beat England (2011)
Ireland sealed a win in record breaking fashion against old sporting rivals. After England set a target of 327, Ireland set about chasing it down, somewhat poorly to begin with having lost a wicket on the first ball.
Kevin O’Brien scored 113 runs off just 63 balls – the fastest century in Cricket World Cup history – on the way to Ireland chasing their target down with five balls to spare, securing the highest ever run chase in the Cricket World Cup.
