The cricket industry is getting seriously affected by the virus. Not only did Pakistan Super League 2020 come to a halt, but also Indian Premier League 2020. The 13th edition Indian Premier League might not go forward at all. This will result in huge losses for the investor. However, the Indian Government says that it is finally the organisers decision.
On top of that, the series between India and South Africa and the one between New Zealand and Australia did not go ahead as per plans.
