West Indies-Ireland second ODI postponed due to Covid cases and injuries

Andy Balbirnie, Lorcan Tucker and interim head coach David Ripley returned positive tests over the weekend

The second One-Day International between West Indies and Ireland has been postponed, scheduled to be played on Tuesday (January 11), after three members of the Ireland camp tested positive for Covid-19.   

Tuesday's game in Kingston was postponed "following recent testing, and two players being ruled out due to injury, resulting in Ireland having a severely depleted squad", Cricket West Indies and Cricket Ireland said in a joint statement.

The two bodies said they were reviewing the match schedule and "working to explore all possibilities for the series to be completed".

According to a report in ESPNcricinfo, Ireland captain Andy Balbirnie, wicketkeeper-batter Lorcan Tucker and interim head coach David Ripley returned positive tests over the weekend. Meanwhile, Simi Singh and Ben White had tested positive prior to the series and missed the first ODI.

Earlier, Ireland’s ODI series against USA was also cancelled due to Covid. Paul Stirling and Shane Getkate tested positive and were quarantined in Florida. However, the two were set to feature in the second ODI. Meanwhile, Ireland's Andy McBrine and Mark Adair are currently out injured.

West Indies won the first ODI of the three-match series by 24 runs. The two teams are also scheduled to play a solitary T20I on January 16.
