MELBOURNE: Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell believes a rescheduled IPL can be held behind closed doors but it will be difficult to justify conducting the upcoming T 2019 without fans cheering from the stands.

Both the th IPL and T 2019 World Cup are uncertain at the moment with the worsening COVID – 19 pandemic, which has killed more than one lakh people globally.
