Being a brand ambassador of Toyoto, it was not a task for O’Brien to get his car repaired without hassle. The big-hitting all-rounder holds the record for the fastest World Cup hundred, reaching the mark after just 50 balls against England during the 2011 tournament in India.
The visiting Warriors lost wickets early in response to Leinster;s 124 for 4 from 12 overs. William Porterfield’s half-century from 30 balls was not enough to help Warriors chase down the massive target in the damp conditions.
