Florida, Dec 28 : The second One-Day International between the United States and Ireland has been postponed by a day due to Covid issues, Cricket Ireland said on Tuesday.

“The opening One-Day International in the Dafabet USA v Ireland Men’s International Series scheduled for December 28 has been pushed back to December 29 due to a small number of new positive Covid cases within the playing and support staff groups,” Cricket Ireland said in a statement.

“All of the remaining players and support staff have undergone a full suite of antigen testing, all with negative results.

“If both teams can complete an additional set of negative testing, then the series will proceed with the amended dates of December 29 and 30.”

Earlier, the first ODI between the USA and Ireland scheduled for December 26 was cancelled due to a positive case of Covid in the umpiring team.

The final match in the series will remain as scheduled for December 30.
