Coronavirus has hit the global sporting calendar by putting Olympics, European soccer leagues and the National Basketball Association on hold. It has also forced many cricket events across the world to be postponed or cancelled. The suspension of sport activities worldwide has brought the countries under mounting financial pressure. However, the Australian government is planning to restart sports to bring back the income lost during the pandemic and pave a way for a growing economy.
