Dubai: The second One-day International between the UAE and Ireland, scheduled today in Abu Dhabi, has been suspended.

The decision of Emirates Cricket Board, supported by Cricket Ireland, was taken after a new directive was received from authorities.

This followed over 48 hours of self-isolation by the UAE team after four reported positive cases of Covid-19. The directive from the authorities requires the UAE team to remain in quarantine for an extended period of time.
