Irelands ODI international against the UAE which was due to be played tomorrow in Abu Dhabi, has been postponed.

Emirates Cricket Board has advised Cricket Ireland of a further four players who have tested positive for COVID-19.

It's the second time that an ODI between the countries has been postponed, with last Sunday's game between the sides now re-scheduled for Saturday.

It's yet to be confirmed if tomorrow's game will be fixed for a later date.

In a statement, the Emirates Cricket Board confirmed that four further UAE players had tested positive for Covid-19, meaning that Tuesday's ODI has been suspended. 

"Emirates Cricket Board has confirmed that tomorrow's match in the ODI Series 2021 against Ireland has been suspended," the statement read. "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."

"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."

Ireland currently trails 1-0 in what was originally envisioned a four-match series, after losing the opening match on Friday. 

The next game in the series is currently scheduled for Thursday.
