The UAE had won the first match of the four-game series by six wickets on Friday

The Emirates Cricket Board has confirmed that Tuesday’s match in the Sky247.net ODI Series against Ireland has been suspended due to another positive Covid-19 case.

Earlier, the second match of the series — scheduled for January 10 — was postponed due to the third Covid positive case in the UAE camp.

"This decision, supported by Cricket Ireland, was made 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. Additionally, the directive from the authorities requires the UAE team to remain in quarantine for an extended period of time," a statement from the Emirates Cricket Board said.

"Discussions are continuing with all concerned parties, including the relevant authorities, regarding rescheduling of the remaining matches. A decision will be made and communicated once an agreement has been reached and approved."

The UAE had won the first match of the four-game series by six wickets on Friday.
