Ireland’s one-day international against the West Indies at Stormont has been abandoned after a shower at lunchtime finally put paid to hopes of any play.

The scheduled start was 10:15 BST but Tuesday’s heavy rain meant the prospects of any play always 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.
