The coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has disrupted the entire calendar of sporting events in the year 2020. However, after a break of more than 4 months, international cricket resumed in England, followed by conduction of football and other cricketing events. The success of these events could be attributed to the "bio-secure bubble", which has ensured the safety of the players as well as the people who are involved in the organization of the event. The bio-bubble refers to the new protocol, which has been associated with a sporting event and wherein all people related to the event remains isolated from the outside world. In conclusion, the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted all the sporting events and there has been a sense of fear among players and organizers. The creation of bio-secure bubbles in hotels, training sessions, recreation places, transportation and matches have made it possible for the events to occur and should be strictly adhered for the safety of everyone.
