Cricket in Olympics

The Sport Cricket might me included into the Olympics as the International Cricket Council (ICC) has been approved by the International Olympics Committee.

For cricket to be a part of the 2020 ..edition of the Olympics, it will have to ward off competition from other American sports like golf and baseball, which are also trying for an entry into the Olympics.

This induction means that cricketers can take part in IOC organised events.

Some of the strongest supporters of cricket to be played in Olympics have been the likes of Adam Gilchrist, Steve Waugh, Stephen Fleming, Kumar Sangakkara, Sourav Ganguly, VVS Laxman and Yuvraj Singh.

The first and the last time cricket was played in an Olympics was in 1900. Great Britain had beaten the hosts France to win the gold.
