KINGSTON, Jamaica ( Associated Press) – The West Indies and Ireland have postponed their second One Day International (ODI) match scheduled for Tuesday.
Cricket West Indies and Cricket Ireland said in a joint statement on Monday that Ireland had little to play for after two more positive coronavirus cases were reported in the camp as well as two players were injured.
No names were mentioned, but the Irish have a total of five players in isolation. Paul Stirling, Simi Singh and Ben White tested positive last week and missed the first ODI on Saturday, when the hosts won by 24 runs.
The boards were reviewing the schedule and hoping to complete the ODI series. The third and last match is to be held on Friday. One-time Twenty20 was closed on Sunday. All are at Sabina Park in Kingston.
Ireland’s tour of the United States and West Indies has been badly disrupted.
The three-ODI series against the US from 26-30 December was canceled after cases of the virus, initially among match officials. A member of the Ireland staff and several American players tested positive ahead of the second ODI. Matters spread and the two teams were considered close contacts, forcing the series to be called off.
