Ireland Paceman David Delany is returning home to Ireland after complaining of knee pain following training in Abu Dhabi, while Josh Little is flying out to join the squad in his place. Josh Little was originally named in the 16-man squad, but in mid-December he was forced to self-isolate after a close contact tested positive by coronavirus. He was tested at the time, but returned a negative result. However, a second test four days later yielded a positive result and he was immediately quarantined at home in Dublin. All other players and coaches returned negative results. Josh Little who has now completed his quarantine period, and has subsequently returned two negative test results, with no symptoms displayed. He has been cleared to join the squad by the Ireland Cricket Board. The national selectors are currently considering whether a 16th player will now be sent out as a replacement for Delany.

Gary Wilson will not join the squad for this tour in order to be at home for the birth of his second child, with Neil Rock coming in as wicket-keeping cover. Ordinarily, Wilson would likely have been able to re-join the squad after the birth, however, this is not possible under the COVID-19 protocols in place for the series without an extended period of self-isolation, so it was agreed that this would rule him out on this occasion. This tour will also be the first since Stuart Barnes, the new Assistant Head Coach and National Bowling Lead, joined the support staff.
