Ireland v West Indies
Match Abandoned without a ball being bowled
Only One-Day International in Belfast

The one-off One-Day International between Ireland and West Indies ended without a ball being bowled with weather playing spoilsport in Belfast on Wednesday.

The day started with soggy outfield due to overnight rain with the umpires scheduling four inspection in a span of four hours between 10:30 and 13:30 local time.

However, even before the final inspection began, rain continued to lash at Civil Service Cricket Club and the game was called-off by 13:34 local time.

West Indies will now head to Chester-le-Street to take on England in a solitary Twenty20 International on 16th September before the five-match ODI series that kicks-off three days later.
