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

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.

The skies were bright over Stormont for much of the morning but, due to a wet outfield the scheduled start of 10:15 local time was delayed.

The umpires, after consultation with both captains William Porterfield and Jason Holder, informed match referee Javagal Srinath of their decision and he finally put the crowd out of their misery.

"It's dry overhead at the moment so we're hoping we can get some sort of play under way". On Wednesday, it faces Ireland, a side that had defeated it in the World Cup in 2015, in a one-off ODI in Belfast.

Ireland will be in action again on 29 November on day one of their final Intercontinental Cup match against Scotland in the UAE. He has been absent from ODIs during a breakdown in relations between some of the players and their employers.

The ICC confirmed after the abandonment that the Windies must beat England 5-0 - or 4-0, including a no-result or tie - if they are to book their direct involvement in 2019's global tournament.
