The second ODI between UAE and Ireland has been postponed after another member of the hosts’ squad tested positive for COVID-19. Sunday’s (January 10) game will now be played on January 16.
“The Emirates Cricket Board has advised us today of a further positive COVID test amongst its playing squad, and we have both agreed the safest course of action is to postpone the second ODI scheduled for tomorrow. We hope to play this match on the 16th January, all going well,” Richard Holdsworth, High Performance Director for Cricket Ireland, said.
“All Irish players have tested negative. We appreciate the speed and transparency of Emirates Cricket to ensure that the health and safety of players, support staff and workers at the ground comes first.”
