ICC exploring prospect of cricket inclusion in Olympics

New delhi,November 23: The chief executive of the International Cricket Council (ICC) David Richardson, has confirmed that possibilities of including cricket in the summer Olympics are being explored following a positive meeting with the officials of the International Olympic Committee.

Richardson said that they had met the IOC president Thomas Bach, adding that they were open to the opportunity if it was worthwhile to include cricket in Olympics. 

However, the ICC chief admitted that they need to overcome the hurdle of the IOC accepting cricket because there are a lot of other sports that want inclusion in the 2024 Olympics.

Cricket's shortest format, Twenty20, was a part of the last two editions of Asian Games in Guangzhou (China 2010) and Incheon (South Korea 2014).
