Ireland all-rounder Kevin O’Brien may be regretting one of his eight sixes for Leinster Lightning after the ball smashed the front window of his car.

O’Brien is renowned for his mighty hitting – he blasted the quickest century in World Cup history in Ireland’s 2011 win over England.

But this was the first of his many maximums to find the front seat of his car as the final landing point.

O’Brien hit 82 as the Lightning earned a 24-run win over North-West Warriors.

The 26-year-old was a bright light in a rain-affected Test Triangle Inter-Provincial Series match at Pembroke, with his quickfire 82 coming off just 37 balls.

The Twenty20 game was reduced to 12 overs a side and the Dublin hosts finished with an impressive 124-4.

It left the Warriors with a near impossible task of chasing down the massive target in dull, damp conditions.

The Warriors lost wickets early in the response, and apart from William Porterfield’s 50 from 30 balls, they never looked likely to threaten the Lightning and went down by 24 runs (DLS method).
