The International Cricket Council (ICC) has confirmed that it has set up a working group to bid for cricket’s inclusion in the Los Angeles Games in 2028.

The last time cricket was a part of the Olympics was in 1900. But it could become a permanent fixture with the ICC hoping to see it included in Brisbane 2032 and beyond.
