The One-Day International leg of the white-ball cricket series between the United States and Ireland was cancelled because of coronavirus-related concerns.
Two members of the Irish team’s support staff have tested positive, as well as several partners of players, resulting in two Ireland players being deemed as close contacts. All players returned negative test results in the latest checks overnight.
The first game of the three-match series had already been cancelled, and the second ODI put back a day, after COVID-19 cases were detected among the umpiring team and members of the U.S. squad. The second and third games were due to take place on Wednesday and Thursday.
In a joint statement, USA Cricket and Cricket Ireland said: “The risks and concerns about further spread have meant that both Boards have regrettably agreed to cancel the remaining two scheduled matches.” The teams split the Twenty20 series 1-1.
The Ireland squad is scheduled to depart Florida for Kingston, Jamaica, on Friday for a series against the West Indies.
