ICC wants cricket at 2028 Olympics

22 January, 2023

The ICC has recommended six-team T20 events for both men and women to the 2028 Los Angeles Olympic Games organising committee, as it continues its push for cricket to be included in the biggest global sports events.

Though there were reports that cricket had failed to make it to the 2028 LA Olympics, ESPN cricinfo understands that no decision has been taken yet and a final call will be taken by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) around October this year after the LA28 organisers finalise the list of new sports by March.

These will then be ratified, at the IOC’s session in Mumbai, expected to take place around October this year. If the proposal is accepted, it is likely that the six participating teams would be the top six in the ICC’s men’s and women’s T20 rankings on a cut-off date.
