While the government had continued with the prohibition of commercial flights, metro services, educational institutions across the nation, it has put forth a few relaxations, one of which includes the opening of sports stadiums and sports complexes. However, the MHA has made it clear that spectators won't be allowed. 

"Sports complexes and stadia will be permitted to open, however, spectators will not be allowed," read the statement released by MHA. 

This implies that sports bodies like the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), the All India Football Federation, can begin the planning of resuming sports, but behind closed doors.

For cricket, BCCI can look at the resumption of outdoor training before chalking down plans to restart domestic season which has put to a halt since the Ranji Trophy final two months back. This could also leave BCCI to beginning planning for IPL although with travel restrictions they could only wait until the pandemic settles down. 

However, sport continues to be listed among the functions, gatherings and large congregations that are not allowed as of now.
