Monday is final chance for series to continue as Paul Stirling admits frustrations

Ireland’s second ODI against the UAE in Abu Dhabi has been postponed yet again, despite no further positive Covid tests being returned.

The second ODI has now been scheduled for January 10, 12, 14 and 16, but on each occasion it has been pushed back, with UAE public health directives preventing “the resumption of competitive action”, according to a Cricket Ireland statement. Four UAE players have tested positive for Covid to date, while the Ireland camp have exclusively returned negative results.

The series, which UAE lead 1-0 after a six-wicket win in the first ODI, had been due to comprise four matches, but will now see, at most, two games played. The two boards are in discussions about playing a fixture on Monday, with Ireland’s three-match ODI series against Afghanistan due to start on Thursday.
