Tomorrow is the 10th anniversary of Ireland Cricket's greatest day and the fastest individual hundred in World Cup history. Kevin O'Brien is marking it with an Ask Me Anything Q and A.
"I thought it would be something to do in these tough times and lockdown has been extended here in Dublin to the middle of April so it is a chance to celebrate a personal milestone for me and the team 10 years on," says O'Brien.
For those present in Bangalore on March 2, 2011 and even those watching on television - many watching their first cricket match - it remains a treasured memory. Yet, at one stage during the England innings, there was a doubt that O'Brien would even be able to bat, never mind hit a 50-ball century as Ireland enacted the impossible dream and scored 329 for a three-wickets victory - still the highest successful chase at a World Cup.
"I injured my knee after about 15 overs and I remember Kieran O'Reilly (the Ireland physio) was on the field for about five minutes," recalls O'Brien. "Thankfully, I pulled through and after that the adrenaline kicked in and I wasn't thinking about my knee too much. But I was OK to bat.
"I wasn't needed to bowl anyway. TJ (Trent Johnston) and Mooners (John Mooney) bowled well at the end of the innings to keep England to a total a little bit below what they should have got from the position they were in.
"They were 270 with two down and nowadays with so much T20 cricket being played around the world, if they were in that same position today they would have got over 400. Teams have no real fear now.
"So I wouldn't say we were confident at halfway, but I remember Simmo (coach Phil Simmons) saying 'we are in a good position, it is a good wicket, and a pretty small boundary, so let's bat sensibly and set it up for the last 10-15 overs.' But England were still huge favourites."
In the dressing room, Andrew White was still getting over the disappointment of losing his place, after scoring only 10 in the first match of the World Cup against Bangladesh.
"Purdy (captain William Porterfield) told me I wasn't playing on the morning of the game. So I was disappointed. I'd struggled in the first game and wanted an opportunity to put it right, but you have to get over it pretty quickly and help the team.
"I did get on as a fielder in the latter stages of the England innings when we did so well. But when Purdy was out first ball, there was a sense of going through the motions." said White.
Gary Wilson, who was chosen to replace his fellow Ulsterman, was enjoying the opposite emotion, although as he recalls, it was a late decision. So late, in fact, that he wasn't even on the official team-sheet which arrived in the Press Box.
"No-one knew what our strongest team was, going into the first game. I think Whitey was picked against Bangladesh because of the perception he played spin better and I got in against England because I played pace better. So we swapped every match until I got runs against West Indies.
"I was told getting off the bus at the ground before the Bangladesh game, 'You're with me today,' that was Simmo's way of telling you that you wouldn't be playing! It was probably the biggest disappointment of my whole career," says Wilson.
"However, I played against England and as history has it now, it was a great game to play in, so maybe I owe Simmo my gratitude."
When it was Wilson's turn to bat, Ireland were 103 for three but exactly two overs later he lost Ed Joyce and it was 106 for four.
Enter Kevin O'Brien.
"I edged my second ball off Graham Swann for a four through the slips," recalls O'Brien. "The commentators at the time said he should have a slip for the new man. Thankfully, (England captain Andrew) Strauss didn't have one in."
O'Brien was on his way.
He didn't have Wilson's company for long, however. Just 10 balls later, "Swann got me lbw. I knew I was out," admits the then Surrey professional. "I actually took the review but only because Kevin told me to. It was hitting middle of middle (stump).
"Everybody thought we were dead and buried." Or as White puts it: "If anyone thought the game wasn't over at 111 for five they are lying."
Back out in the middle Alex Cusack, the Aussie who married an Irish girl and became an Irish citizen, had joined O'Brien. It was to be a vital partnership.
"We could have tapped it around for another 15 overs and lost respectably by 50 or 60 runs, but I'd rather have been bowled out for 180," said O'Brien. So 55 were added in the next seven overs with Kevin hitting his first two sixes, off Swann. Then the batsmen surprised everyone.
"It was only the 31st over, but we decided to take the batting powerplay (when the fielding team could have three players on the boundary). It was normally taken much later in the innings when the charge was on, but at that stage we had nothing to lose."
It certainly surprised England. They had no answer to O'Brien's blitz in the next five overs as he moved from 35 to 80 and Ireland had added another 62 runs. It was 229 for five, less than 100 needed and 14 overs to get them.
"That's when I first had a feeling we would win," says O'Brien. "We had the momentum, Mooners, TJ and Dockers (George Dockrell) were no mugs with the bat so we had plenty of batting left that would get us home. I also got the feeling that England's heads were down."
Wilson, seated with just his socks on, his feet on the balcony, was not wanting to believe, "because it's the hope that kills you.
"I had a conversation with Nobby (Niall O'Brien) when Kevin had reached 70. I said 'we could actually do this'.
White, as 12th man, was pitchside watching the drama unfold.
"The closer Kevin got to his hundred the harder it was to watch. I was thinking we are going to get to 310 and lose by 15-20 runs and there is nothing worse in sport than what if.
"I actually went out to the middle just after he got his hundred and said to him, 'just bat properly and see it home'. I'm not sure anything registered, but I had to tell him for my own peace of mind."
O'Brien admitted: "I had no idea it was the fastest hundred, but I hit a full toss to mid-wicket and it was probably the quickest two I had ever run. The feeling at the time was just relief, but to score a hundred in a World Cup is pretty cool."
Mooney and Johnston would be needed, however, because three balls after reaching his landmark, O'Brien "sold Cusi down the river", running him out and after scoring 113 off 63 balls, O'Brien was also run out.
"I was knackered. I would have made it back for two, but I slipped on my turn at the bowler's end and that stopped my momentum. If I hadn't have slipped I would have made it, but it was a horrendous dive. It would have been nice to have been there at the end, but no dramas."
Ireland were now 317 for seven, just 11 short of victory and still 11 balls remaining, and when TJ hit the next ball from Stuart Broad to the boundary, even the most unbelieving were convinced.
"What happened next was just unbelievable," recalls Wilson.
"After Johnboy (Mooney) hit the winning runs, I was among the first to run onto the field. There is a great photo of me jumping on him and looking back now I almost wish I hadn't done it, but it was my first win in a World Cup and got a little too excited, but not quite as excited as Andrew White who hadn't even played in the game."
"The fact that it was England made it so much sweeter," is White's recollection. "Do I look back and regret I wasn't in the 11? As time has worn on, you count yourself lucky to have been there for such a big occasion.
"It would be very selfish to say I wasn't part of it, because I was part of it. And it was an excellent World Cup for us, again."
The main man, meanwhile, admits he went into "auto-pilot" at the end.
"Everybody in the squad just went into a massive big huddle and I then started shaking the hands of (coach) Andy Flower and the English management before going to join the rest of the boys. Not sure why I did that, just auto-pilot I suppose, but it's easy to forget the losing team.
"Every camera was in our faces and I remember Nialler was jumping around with a pair of Adidas runners in his hand for some reason, as you can see in the photo. I still don't know why he was carrying them to this day - probably looking for an endorsement deal!
"We had a couple of beers in the changing room, got back to the hotel at about 12.30am - it was a day/night match, don't forget - and the residents' bar was actually closed, but thankfully they gave us a team room beside reception, so we spent the night singing a few songs. I remember waking up at half past six the next morning and my knee was in bits."
Four days later, however, O'Brien and Ireland were back in action, against hosts India, but there was to be no fairytale follow-up. Kevin was out for nine and India won by five wickets. Three games later, Ireland were on their way home; two weeks later India were world champions.
