O’Brien could make plenty from Twenty20 cricket

| 03.03.2011

KEVIN O’BRIEN is 4/1 with Ladbrokes to win an IPL contract in 2011 or 2012 following his heroics for Ireland against England.

Ireland are 2/5 to win another match in the tournament and 3/1 to be playing Test cricket by 2015.

David Williams of Ladbrokes said: “IPL franchises will surely be eyeing up O’Brien for a lucrative signature. Another few performances like their epic victory over England and it might convince the ICC that Ireland are ready to step up to the top table and play test match cricket.”
