Cricket in the Olympics is a hot talk these days but to tell you the truth that the discussion always pops up during the Olympics.

Cricket has only once been played at the Olympics with Great Britain and hosts France as the only participants in the Olympics of Paris in 1900.
The Olympics is the biggest sports event in the world. Almost every sport is being played in the Olympics except cricket.
It is always heard that cricket in the Olympics can be seen soon but never got a confirmation from the head of cricket that is ICC.
The game of cricket took a lot of time and it is one of those reasons that the Olympic authorities never took interest in cricket.
USA Cricket today hailed the news that the ICC has confirmed its intent to bid for cricket in the Olympic Games from Los Angeles 2028 onward.
ICC has set a team to lead the bid on behalf of the sport which will be focused on cricket becoming part of the Olympics for LA 2028.
What were the possible reasons behind the exclusion of cricket in the Olympics?
1. The game of cricket takes a lot of time in comparison of other games in the Olympics.
2. Cricket is not popular in other parts of the world. Cricket is the most popular game in Asia.
3. Cricket did not get popularity when it was first introduced in the Olympics of 1900 in Paris.
