The Emirates Cricket Board and Cricket Ireland have agreed that tomorrow’s ODI will be suspended, with discussions ongoing about rescheduling of suspended matches.

There have been no new cases reported, but the UAE Department of Health directive for the UAE squad to extend their period of quarantine has forced the decision.

The brief Emirates Cricket Board statement said:

“Emirates Cricket Board confirms that tomorrow’s match against Ireland has been suspended.”

“Although no new positive cases have been returned the decision, supported by Cricket Ireland, was made due to the UAE team remaining in quarantine as directed by authorities on January 11th.”

“As previously communicated discussions continue regarding rescheduling matches.”
