Tomorrow’s ODI suspended; no new cases

The Irish side will need to wait a little longer before a return to play is possible

ABU DHABI - Emirates Cricket Board and Cricket Ireland have agreed that tomorrow’s ODI will be suspended, with discussions ongoing about rescheduling of suspended matches. While no new cases have been reported, the suspension of tomorrow’s game is in line with UAE Department of Health directives.

The Emirates Cricket Board Statement said:

“Emirates Cricket Board confirms that tomorrow’s match in the Abu Dhabi ODI Series 2021 against Ireland has been suspended. Although no new positive cases have been returned the decision, supported by Cricket Ireland, was made due to the UAE team remaining in quarantine as directed by authorities on January 11th. As previously communicated discussions continue regarding rescheduling matches.”

Once more, Cricket Ireland thanks the Emirates Cricket Board and Abu Dhabi Cricket for their transparency and cooperation at this time, and will continue to monitor the situation over coming days. As always, the health and safety of players and support staff will remain Cricket Ireland’s priority.

We will endeavour to keep fans updated as circumstances evolve.
