Due to the COVID-19 virus, the first U.S. ODI to Ireland was cancelled


The U.S. Cricket team stated that the first one-day international cricket match between the U.S. and Ireland scheduled for Sunday has been cancelled due to a positive case of COVID-19 among the referees.

“U.S. Cricket and Irish Cricket will continue to work closely with the International Criminal Court to ensure that the rest of the series can continue, if it is safe,” the U.S. statement said on Friday.

It said that one referee tested positive for COVID-19, but the other three people scheduled to serve as referees are considered close contacts, so no staff can participate in the game.

The second one-day game is scheduled for Tuesday and the third game next Thursday, also in Fort Lauderdale.

The two teams were divided into two Twenty20 international series. The United States defeated the Irish team in the first game, but the Irish team won the second game.
