Olympics news; The International Cricket Council wants inclusion for the 2028 games

Cricket has officially put up its hand to be part of the Olympics with a push for inclusion at the 2028 games in Los Angeles, and beyond.

The International Cricket Council confirmed it has convened a working group to lead the bid on behalf of the sport which will be focused on cricket becoming part of the Olympic family.
