He holds the world record for the fastest century ever scored at a World Cup, coming from 50 balls against England on 2 March 2011.

An all-rounder, O'Brien is an aggressive right-handed middle to lower order batsman and a right-arm medium-fast bowler. He made his One Day International (ODI) debut in 2006 in Ireland's inaugural match.
