All smiles: Kevin and Niall O’Brien react to Ireland’s stunning win and Kevin’s sensational century

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.
