Andrew Balbirnie returned a positive antigen Covid-19 result

Ireland’s second World Cup Super League game against West Indies today has been postponed following further positive Covid cases and injuries in the visiting squad — but both cricket boards hope to save the series.

Captain Andrew Balbirnie and Lorcan Tucker are the latest two players to show up positive on an antigen test and are waiting for PCR results, with Simi Singh and Ben White already ruled out of the serie.
