UAE and Ireland will play a second one-day international in Abu Dhabi on Monday after two matches of the scheduled four-game series were called off due to COVID-19 concerns, officials said.

The UAE and Ireland will play a second one-day international in Abu Dhabi on Monday due to concerns over COVID-19.

The UAE won the opening clash on January 8 without deputy Chirag Suri and left-arm spinner Aryan Lakra.

The next two games were later shut down despite a series of resets.

“We are delighted to be moving forward for the re-scheduled match, and the team is looking forward to getting back into competitive mode,” said Richard Holdsworth, Cricket Ireland’s High Performance Director.

“It has been very disruptive to the team’s plans and players’ preparation, not knowing when to come next, but I know that (Coach) Graham Ford and the team are fit and happy to have a confirmed match in place now.”

After Monday, Ireland will remain in the UAE to play a three-match ODI series against Afghanistan.
