Yes, but since it is very long game and I think if included, only 20-20 is possible because 3-4 matches could be played per day.

Football, boxing, basketball, and many other sports are included in the Olympics...and all of them retain "identities of their own". The fact that they make up the Olympics for a mere two weeks every four years has no bad effect at all on them, it only puts them in a huge world-wide spotlight of publicity. and allows people who are unfamiliar with a particular sport to watch and appreciate it. And even if cricket were to be in the Olympics, it would have to be a limited overs tournament beceause it would be physically impossible to schedule so many test matches in only two weeks. And besides, cricket was already once an Olympic sport..Paris 1900, Great Britain beat France

Well there's nothing wrong with cricket being included in the olympics. The only problem is some countries don't play cricket. Example the Philippines.

Cricket was there in Commonwelth games a few years ago, if it has to be included in Olympics it shoul be in 20-20 form as it is short and more exciting.

I would love to see cricket there, but its played in far too less countries, also the match duration simply goes against it, i think 20-20 can be a better option for olympics and commonwelth, and it will be a great treat to watch in that context
