1st ODI cricket match between USA and Ireland canceled due to COVID-19, Sports News

USA Cricket said the first one-day international cricket between the Americans and Ireland scheduled for Sunday has been called off due to a positive case of COVID-19 among the referee team.

“USA Cricket and Cricket Ireland will continue to work closely together, alongside the ICC, to ensure that the rest of the series can continue, if it is safe to do so,” the US statement said on Friday.


He said one referee tested positive for COVID-19, but the other three who were to officiate were considered close contacts, so no crew member would be available for the match.
