Mooney returning home
JOHN MOONEY is leaving Ireland’s tour of the West Indies with immediate effect due to a stress-related illness. Mooney has been receiving treatment for his condition for some time and has been able to manage it to a sufficient degree to continue playing international cricket. However, it became clear over the last 24 hours that his condition had deteriorated, and the decision was made to return home as quickly as possible to resume his treatment. He is returning to Dublin to be with his family this evening and will take no part in the remainder of the tour.
Ireland have lost both matches in the NAGICO Super50 tournament.
Meanwhile, Guyana will play the Windward Islands in today’s match which starts at 2 p.m. at Queen’s Park Oval, Trinidad. (PR)
