MCC: ICC working internally to get cricket in Olympics as early as 2028


    The ICC is continuing its work internally to get cricket back into the Olympics.

    The sport has not featured at the games in over a century with its only appearance coming in the 1900 Games.

    According to the MCC’s World Cricket Council, the women’s game (in T20 format) is likely to be included at the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.

    It says cricket is also due to return to the Asian Games in 2022, likely again to be in T20 format.

    WCC says, “There is still much to be done if cricket is to be included in the Olympics, with Los Angeles 2028 the earliest likely opportunity and the ICC continuing to work internally to align cricket to pursue the sport’s Olympic ambitions.”
