The Ireland Wolves game against the Bangladesh Emerging Team had to be stopped and then suspended as a result of a positive Covid-19 test.

Taking place at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chittagong, the one-day encounter began as normal following negative testing all round.

However, further analysis discovered a positive test amongst the Irish players and as a result, the game had to be suspended, while the Irish player in question was immediately isolated.

Bangladesh had batted first and were 122 for four after 30 overs. Mark Adair was the best of the Irish bowlers with two wickets for 20 off six overs bowled.

A statement from Cricket Ireland said: "Today's match between Bangladesh Emerging and Ireland Wolves has been suspended on medical advice.

"Prior to today’s game, both squads received negative results for Covid, and the game proceeded as per protocols. However, a review of results by mid-morning by the local laboratory detected one positive test in the Ireland Wolves squad.

"Play was suspended and the player was immediately isolated ahead of a further test today."
