Even the biggest tournament planned for the year – the ICC T20 World Championship – had to be postponed for a year. Fortunately, Coronavirus couldn’t quite “ruin” cricket, but it did manage to change the game in many ways, at least temporarily. It ensured that the game could not be played internationally for 117 days – the longest hiatus since the world wars. Bubbles, quarantines, expanded squads, and constant COVID-19 testing were by no means easy.
