West Indies, Ireland to play final two ODIs on Thursday and Sunday
Joint statement by Cricket West Indies and Cricket Ireland
Cricket West Indies (CWI) and Cricket Ireland (CI) have confirmed changes to the match schedule for the ongoing CG Insurance One-Day International Series.
The second CG Insurance ODI will now be played on Thursday January 13 with the third and final CG Insurance ODI on Sunday January 16 at Sabina Park. First ball is 09:30h local time (10:30h Eastern Caribbean/14:30h Ireland).
The rescheduling occurred following five COVID-19 positive cases, as well as injuries in the Ireland camp leaving the Ireland squad depleted ahead of the second CG Insurance ODI, which was originally was scheduled for Tuesday, January 11.
As a consequence, the one-off CG Insurance T20 International has been cancelled to allow for this revised schedule and to avoid impact on the teams’ travel plans and subsequent fixtures.
These ODI matches form part of the ICC ODI Super League with both teams having the opportunity to win points to be one of the top seven teams, excluding hosts India, to gain automatic qualification for the 2023 ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup.
West Indies lead the three-match series 1-0 following their 24-run victory in the first CG Insurance ODI on Saturday.
Live coverage is available on ESPN Caribbean in the West Indies and BT Sport in the UK and Ireland as well as with CWI’s broadcast partners around the world.
