O'Brien will be available for Test and T20 cricket

Ireland all-rounder Kevin O'Brien, whose century against England in a 2011 World Cup match remains the fastest hundred in the tournament's history, has quit ODIs, Cricket Ireland said Friday.

O'Brien wrote his name in the record books with a 50-ball century in Bangalore 10 years ago when Ireland beat England by three wickets, chasing down a 328-run victory target with five balls to spare.

O'Brien smashed 113, clobbering six sixes in his 63-ball blitz, in the defining knock of his ODI career.

He will be available for Test and T20 cricket.

The 37-year old's 3619 runs is the third highest from his country and he is Ireland's leading wicket-taker with 114 scalps in ODIs.

His father Brendan and elder brother Niall also played for Ireland.
