SOUTHAMPTON, England – As the one-day international between Ireland Men and England Men is played out at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton, the visiting side will display a flag adjacent their dressing room with the simple message of “Thank you” on it.
Captain Andrew Balbirnie said:
“During the upcoming one-day international series, the Ireland Men’s team – on behalf of the entire Irish cricket family – want to acknowledge the hard work, dedication and selfless sacrifice that frontline workers have displayed throughout the pandemic. To the many thousands of staff in the HSE, HSCNI and NHS, we simply say: Thank you.”
“You have shown us the best of humanity during the worst of times, and we shouldn’t forget that the fight against COVID-19 goes on.”
“None of us would be able to play cricket today without your efforts. So, once more, we say: thank you.”
