The Ireland Men’s cricket team is in Jamaica and is set to play a multi-format white-ball series against the West Indies between 8-16 January 2022. While the squads for both sides have been named, Ireland’s Paul Stirling is out of the first ODI after testing positive for COVID.

The squad will play a warm-up match today against a Jamaica Scorpions XI. All matches will be played at Sabina Park, a venue steeped in Irish cricket folklore being the ground that Ireland Men beat Pakistan in the 2007 ICC Cricket World Cup.
