West Indies ill-prepared to weather storm

In the past few months, Cricket West Indies were considering senior players' selection in the Test team, who are playing in various T20 leagues, and gave permission to those, ahead of series against Zimbabwe and New Zealand.

Despite sunny but windy conditions at the Belfast venue, umpires Michael Gough and Mark Hawthorn chose to call off the game just after lunchtime due to the fact that heavy overnight rain left the outfield "unfit for play".

Assessments took place at 10.30am, 11.30am and 12.30pm after the original 10.15am start-time was postponed due to a wet area of the outfield.

A final inspection at 1.30pm saw the game abandoned after a period of rain fell around 1pm.

"If it was a club game we would have been on the pitch in the sunshine early on", former Ireland opening batsman Jeremy Bray told RTÉ Sport.

"It's dry overhead at the moment so we're hoping we can get some sort of play under way". This is Ireland's first ODI as a test nation.

Pending gale-force winds and rain rather than the brute force of Chris Gayle's bat were on the minds of the Irish players at Stormont on Tuesday as they finished preparations for today's Turkish Airlines One-Day International Challenge against the West Indies (10.15). He has been absent from ODIs during a breakdown in relations between some of the players and their employers. Otherwise, the two-time World Cup winners must battle through a qualifying tournament.
