Ireland v West Indies ODI abandoned

Chris Gayle (centre) surveys the scene at a soggy Stormont

Ireland’s one-day international against West Indies at Stormont was abandoned after a rain shower at lunchtime ended any hope of the game getting under way.

The scheduled start was 10:15 BST but Tuesday’s heavy rain meant the prospect of any play looked slim, despite morning sun in Belfast.

A number of pitch inspections took place before the abandonment was announced at 13:30 after yet more rain.
