Fastest Hundreds in World Cup
World Cup holds a tremendous significance in the cricketing arena. So the normal thought process is that you hold on to your wicket and not take any undue risk, but not for these men. Bang, Bang, Bang – That is the way to go for these men.
The latest sensation in the cricket world is Irishman Kevin O' Brien. Ireland has always been known as giant killers for their record in the past. But the game against England was almost lost until Kevin O’ Brien decided to spoil Andrew Strauss’s 34th birthday. He played a gem of an innings to take Ireland to an improbable victory. The 26 year old hit 13 boundaries and six sixes to score the fastest century in World Cup history.
