Eastern Times Correspondent, Dhaka, 5 March: An unofficial one-day has been called off as an Ireland Wolves player tests positive for Covid-19 in Chattogram on Friday, said a source at Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB).

It was the first one-day of the five-match series between Ireland Wolves and Bangladesh.
