Ireland's planned seven-match series against Bangladesh in May has been postponed.

Three ODI's were scheduled to take place in Belfast, with four T20I's arranged for Chelmsford, The Oval, Bristol and Edgbaston.

The ECB suspended all cricket in England until the end of May on Friday, ruling out the possibility of matches going ahead there.

“Once the scale of the COVID-19 pandemic was understood, and the advice of both Governments and partner boards was sought, it became increasingly unlikely that this series could proceed as scheduled," said Cricket Ireland CEO Warren Deutrom.

“We will continue monitoring the situation, and will liaise as necessary with relevant sports bodies, public health agencies and our stakeholders here and abroad, and provide further updates on the home season in due course.”

Given the state of the pandemic it would appear that the three match T20I series against New Zealand in June will be the next casualty.

Bready was set to host the matches on June 19, 21 and 23but as the scale of the pandemic increases, that seems a forlorn hope.
