West Indies v Ireland second ODI postponed due to COVID cases and injuries

The two teams said in a joint statement that the second day of the international match between the West Indies and Ireland, scheduled for Tuesday in Kingston, has been postponed due to COVID-19 cases and injuries to the visiting team.

Ireland reported two more positive cases, while two players were ruled out due to injuries, for a total of five players in quarantine.

Paul Sterling, Simi Singh and Ben White tested positive last week and missed their first ODI on Saturday as West Indies won by 24 points.

“Necessary” for obvious reasons

“The CWI and CI are in discussions to review the competition schedule and are working hard to explore all possibilities to complete the series,” the statement read.

The two teams are scheduled to meet in the third ODI on Friday before the tour concludes with a one-off Twenty20 International in Kingston on Sunday.

Ireland’s trip to the US was also disrupted by COVID-19. The two teams played a T20 series that ended 1-1 before the ODI series in Florida was canceled after a tour staff member tested positive.
