USA Cricket announces a number of Team USA squad and other series updates for the upcoming Dafabet USA v Ireland Men’s International Series 2021 at the Broward County Stadium just outside of the City of Fort Lauderdale in Florida. The build up for the historic series continues at pace, but a number of members of the squad are yet to join up with their teammates, or had their departures delayed, as a result of COVID-19 related issues. USA Cricket issues the following latest updates:
- A number of players have tested positive during pre-series testing, they are all safely in isolation and will need to complete the requisite 10 day period and only be able to be considered for selection once they return a negative PCR result after their 10 days in isolation.
