Ireland’s six-match limited-overs tour to Zimbabwe next month has been postponed due to the spread of Covid-19.
Ireland were due to play three T20 Internationals and three One-Day Internationals between April 2 and 12 in Bulawayo.
“This is the only reasonable decision as we all play our part in containing the spread of COVID-19,” Cricket Ireland chief executive Warren Deutrom said.
“We will take a safety-first approach over the coming weeks and months.”
“Apart from the players and coaches, it is the families and social circles that we are conscious of, and to tour at this point would cause unnecessary risk to the wider community.”
“We shall work with Zimbabwe Cricket to seek a new date for the tour when we are all in a position to plan for the future with greater certainty.”
