Oh, Oh, Oh … O’Brien.

Irish cricketer Kevin O’Brien steered his Leinster Lightning to a convincing victory in the Inter-Provincial Series on Thursday, but not without bizarrely damaging his car in the process.

After the T20 match was reduced to 12 overs-a-side due to weather, O’Brien smashed 82 from 37 balls in a blistering assault. The 36-year-old cracked eight sixes and three boundaries during the Man of the Match performance at Pembroke Cricket Club in Dublin, steering his side to 124/4.

However, one of O’Brien’s monster sixes unfortunately landed in the adjacent car park and smashed the windscreen of his own car.

O’Brien later posted to Twitter: “I’ll park further away next time.”

The Leinster Lightning went on to win the match by 24 runs on DLS method, with spin bowler Simi Singh claiming 3/11 in the second innings.

O’Brien has played 148 ODI matches and 96 T20s during his stellar international career, which includes four centuries.

The right-hander famously steered Ireland to a historic victory over England during the 2011 Cricket World Cup in India, pummelling 113 from 63 balls. It remains the fastest World Cup century in history.
