At each ICC World Cup, all of the cricket fans are interested in seeing how their associates or non-test players play. But everyone loves if one of these so-called miniatures could punch over his weight and succeed in making it at the expense of a reputable name. These are the incidents for every cricket fan that has to be commemorated since Zimbabwe struck Australia in 1983, Kenya struck West Indies on a leap year in the year 1996 and the Bangladesh team beat Pakistan in the year 1999.

The Irish cricket board announced a victory over Pakistan also at the 2007 World Cup, leading to Pakistan’s exit from World Cup and then all the disputes surrounding it.

Ireland demonstrated its metal and became the undisputed leader among the associates in the next four years. They are easily qualified for both the 2011 World Cup as well as hoped to perform 1-2 well against the best teams in the group, like India, England, and South Africa.

An energetic Irish team encountered England's old enemy on M on 2 March 2011 at Bangalore’s Chinnaswamy Stadium. England managed to score 327 runs for eight wickets under one of the best batting-friendly pitches in India. All of the top batsmen like Bell (81), Trott (92), Pietersen (59), and Strauss (34) have paid their contributions.

Ireland chased 328 to an unlikely victory when the first ball went by the captain William Porterfield. Joyce and Niall O'Brien Ireland were on the 23rd, despite a few contributions by Stirling, soon at 106, for 4.

It was a 50 ball century

At 6, Kevin O'Brien came to bat he is Niall's elder brother. Since its beginning, Kevin was part of the Ireland team and has developed a reputation among the associates for a very powerful hitter. But that day he preferred world cricket to spread his reputation from the international level. He deliberately began to identify holes immediately. He hit fifty in 30 balls before anyone could know that he needed just 20 more balls to achieve his second ODI century in a stylistic way. It was the world cup’s fastest ever century in only 50 balls.

The race was 113, and Kevin O'Brien needed 11 races. But John Mooney finishes the chasing with a tap in the very first ball of a 50th and Ireland became more respectable as a giant killer.

Australian David Warner is now the leading runner with five hundred runs from seven matches in this current version. Warner, who was away from international cricket for over a year, made an amazing comeback in this world cup. He lasted 2 centuries and 3 half-centuries in only 7 hosts so far.

Aaron Finch seems to be currently the second-highest runner with 496 runs. Finch followed by Shakib Al Hasan, the Bangladeshi all-rounder, on 476 runs. Rohit Sharma is now India's leading run-scorer with 338 runs. Virat Kohli is also not far behind with 316 runs, both from five matches.
