Corona made a dent in Ireland’s team, second ODI with West Indies postponed

Kingston (Jamaica). The increasing cases of corona have started to show its effect in cricket matches. The second ODI between the West Indies and Ireland to take place on January 11 was postponed due to Corona. This game was to be played in Kingston.

Cricket West Indies (CWI) and Cricket Ireland issued a joint statement on Monday saying that two more cases of corona virus infection have been found in the team, while two players were injured, leaving the team very weak. Names have not been released, but a total of five players from Ireland are isolated. Paul Stirling, Simi Singh and Ben White tested positive last week and missed Saturday’s first ODI that the hosts won by 24 runs.

Both boards are reviewing the schedule and hope to complete the ODI series. The third and final game will be played on Friday. The only T20 International match will take place on Sunday. All of these games will be played at Sabina Park in Kingston. Ireland’s tour of America and the West Indies has been badly affected.

Ireland’s three-game ODI series against the US, scheduled to take place December 26-30, was canceled due to cases of infection. Initially, these matters were brought between the party officials. A staff member from Ireland and several American players tested positive before the second ODI. Things escalated and the two teams were forced to cancel the series assuming close contacts.
