Ireland-Zimbabwe tour postponed due to Covid-19

Ireland’s Zimbabwe tour has been postponed due to Covid-19 as cricket boards agree to reschedule for later date.

Ireland was set to play three T20 internationals and as many one-day internationals in Zimbabwe this spring but series postponed due to coronavirus concerns; teams are still set to meet in Ireland this summer with World Cup Super League points up for grabs.

Richard Holdsworth, Ireland’s high-performance director, said: “We’re obviously disappointed, but to be honest, it is not an unexpected announcement from our Zimbabwean counterparts.

“We appreciate their efforts and willingness to try and make the tour possible, but in the end the health and safety of players and support staff must be of primary consideration.

“We’ll now look at whether alternate fixtures can be arranged during that period, which is a crucial window in advance of a busy home season and in a T20 World Cup year,” he concludes.
