This (outbreak) is much greater than any sport or IPL. "Even for truncated IPL, the tournament should start in late April or early May as it cannot extend beyond the first week of June. In 2009, when the IPL was held in South Africa, 59 games were played in 37 days.Unlike the Premier League, for example, IPL does not have the option to wait indefinitely.
