- The first ODI between the two countries in the Dafabet USA v Ireland Men’s International Series has been cancelled due to a positive COVID case in the umpiring team for the matches
- USA Cricket and Cricket Ireland will continue to work closely together, alongside the ICC, to ensure the remainder of the series can continue, if safe to do so
The first One Day International in the Dafabet USA v Ireland Men’s International Series scheduled for Boxing Day has unfortunately been cancelled this evening due to a positive COVID case in the umpiring team of Match Officials during the ongoing testing as part of the series’ COVID managed environment.
This has left all 4 of the umpires unavailable for the first ODI with the 3 negative tested umpires being deemed as close contacts to the 1 positive case.
The 2nd and 3rd ODIs, currently scheduled for the 28th and 30th of December, will go ahead as planned, with an alternative match official group if required.
USA Cricket would like to thank all fans and supporters for their continued support and understanding.
