should cricket be played in the Olympics?
24 Dec 06
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
