Kevin O'Brien- A review by Harish Sridhar

An over View of Kevin's career record..

As a right handed batsman,he made his ODI debut against England at Belfast, June 13, 2006 and went on to score 35 of 48 balls.. Not a bad start at all!

Batting Average in ODI : 33.20 in 64 matches played and at the strike rate of 81.33 with the best of 142 against Kenya, which is quite impressive

Batting Average in T-20: 10.75 in 17 matches,with the best of 39 not out and at the strike rate of 105.73

As a bowler: right-arm medium-fast. He has played 64 ODI matches, wickets taken : 49, with the best of 4/71

He has played 17 T-20 matches, wickets taken: 8, with the best of 2/15

This record certainly proves he is worth as an all rounder!

He was the real sensation at the Bengaluru during the recent world cup match against England. Ireland went on to chase a total of 328, and with the team already 111/5, he showed his character of a match winner. He went on to score a brilliant 113 of just 63 balls with 13 four's and 6 six's and Ireland winning the match in style. This match was remembered by every one and one of the best chases that one would have seen, and not to forget he got his century in just 50 balls and the fastest in the world cup history.

Players with these kind of quality make real value for the money and they would be a match winner.

This uncapped player is up for the auctions This time.

Reserve Price : 50,000 US $

With the excellent records, do you think Kevin O'Brien should be the member of the Red-n-Gold gang?

de Villers and Kevin would be a great pair. But I guess RCB can still take him.
