The United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Ireland are ready to restart their international cricket on Friday (8th January). On Friday morning, they will face each other at Sheikh Zayed Stadium (Abu Dhabi) in the first ODI of the four-match ODI series.
While the entire world is battling against COVID-19 since early 2020, both these teams didn’t get many opportunities to play the international cricket in that struggling year.
Ireland last time played an international match in August 2020. It was the ODI series against the hosts England, where the Irish team lost that three-match ODI series by the 2-1 margin. That series was the part of the inaugural ICC Cricket World Cup Super League.
Meanwhile, the UAE last time experienced an international match in February 2020, where they won the 2020 ACC Western Region T20 trophy. They played the ODI for the last time in early January 2020. It was the tri-nation ODI series in Oman which was also the part of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup League 2.
The cricket fans are eager to experience how these two teams will restart their international cricket.
