West Indies and Ireland’s remaining 2 ODIs were rescheduled. Cricket West Indies (CWI) and Cricket Ireland (CI) confirmed changes to the match schedule for the ongoing CG Insurance One-Day International Series.

The first ball is at 9:30 am local time (10:30 am Eastern Caribbean/2:30 pm Ireland).

The rescheduling occurred following five COVID-19 positive cases, as well as injuries in the Ireland camp leaving the Ireland squad depleted ahead of the 2nd CG Insurance ODI which was originally was scheduled for Tuesday, 11 January.

As a consequence, the one-off CG Insurance T20 International has been cancelled to allow for this revised schedule and to avoid impact on the teams’ travel plans and subsequent fixtures.

West Indies Won The 1st ODI Against Ireland And Next 2 ODIs Rescheduled On 13th And 16th January

These ODI matches form part of the ICC ODI Super League with both teams having the opportunity to win points to be one of the top seven teams, excluding hosts India, to gain automatic qualification for the 2023 ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup. The last time when Ireland went to West Indies in 2020, they suffered a 3-0 thrashing. They would be looking to improve on that record and hopefully come back home with a better result this time around.

Kieron Pollard’s inclusion strengthened the West Indies’ side. Although, some notable names won’t be playing in the series. Andre Russell continues to be unavailable, while Shimron Hetmyer misses out after failing the fitness Test. Besides, the likes of Fabian Allan, Evin Lewis, and Anderson Phillip have been ruled out for testing Covid-19 positive. Shai Hope will assume the vice-captaincy duties, while former skipper Jason Holder has also made it to the squad.

Choosing to field at Sabina Park in Kingston, Ireland’s bowlers had the home team in early trouble, with West Indies slipping to 62 for 4 in 19 overs. They had started steadily, being 59 for 1 at one point, though the run-rate dawdled at the three-and-a-half mark. But three wickets fell in the space of 2.2 overs, and captain Kieron Pollard strode out to join the debuting Shamarh Brooks, who had come in at No. 4.

Together, the two put on 155 runs in just 136 balls, having begun cautiously given the rush of wickets, but opening out as the partnership progressed. Shamarh Brooks reached his half-century in 61 balls at the end of the 36th over, while Kieron Pollard had begun his acceleration earlier, but eventually fell for a 66-ball 69, caught at long-on in an attempt to hit his fifth six.

West Indies 269 (Brooks 93, Pollard 69, Adair 3-38, Young 3-56, McBrine 2-52) beat Ireland 245 (Balbirnie 71, Tector 53, Dockrell 30, Shepherd 3-50, Joseph 3-55, Smith 2-26) by 24 runs
