I suddenly have another reason to look forward to the 2024 Olympic games. According to this bbc article, the ICC now intends to start lobbying for twenty20 to be included as an olympic sport. I think that's a great idea. To be honest, the other forms of cricket are a bit too long for a multisport event like the olympics, but the faster, quicker pace of the limited overs format make it much more suitable. I really hope the IOC give it the go ahead. Whoever is selected as host, Paris or LA, it would just be fantastic to see cricket played at an olympic games.
Could cricket become an olympic sport?
