  • Cricket to be included in 2028 Los Angeles Olympics?

The same was confirmed in a statement by MCC World Cricket Committee chairman Mike Getting.

Cricket is in line to be included in the 2028 Olympic Games in Los Angeles, MCC World Cricket Committee chairman Mike Gatting has said following an address by the ICC's new chief executive Manu Sawhney at Lord's this week.

It is also worth noting here that earlier in the year, Sachin Tendulkar, a global cricketing icon, had also advocated for cricket to be included in Olympics.

"That's what they're working towards at the moment and that would be a huge bonus for cricket worldwide, it would be fantastic".

The MCC, custodian of the sport's laws, had its World Cricket Committee (WCC) discuss the inclusion of cricket in multi-sports events at Lord's on Sunday and Monday.

Gatting also made sure that scheduling a two-week window period for the Olympics is not that tough for the ICC as the event comes along just once in four years.

Air Canada ups purchase price in Transat bid, securing largest shareholder's support
Air Canada needs the support of two-thirds of Transat shareholders during a meeting to be held on August 23 in Montreal. Transat shares were up $4.91 at $16.70 in early trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange on Monday.

The BCCI recently coming under the ambit of National Anti-Doping Agency (NADA), an affiliate of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), could be key to the final outcome as it is mandatory for all sporting federations' doping policy to be overseen by the premier body.

On-field umpires Kumar Dharmasena and Marias Erasmus awarded England six runs in total, two by the batsmen and four for the overthrow.

"You're going to have - one hopes - a four-year period, once you know you've been accepted into the Olympics, that gives you a chance to actually shape your two weeks, so it's not as if it is butted into the schedule", he also mentioned.

Gatting believes that the next one-and-a-half-year are very important to the progress of this game. "One of the problems has been negated, where the BCCI is now working with NADA, the drugs agency, which it wasn't previously a part of", Gatting said. "That will help a long way towards the sport being whole, which is what we need it to be to apply for the Olympics, both men and women to play and all countries to comply", he said.

"The WCC is pleased to see that Women's T20 Cricket is likely to be included at the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games, having supported this in their last meeting in March", it added.

Cricket has not featured in the Commonwealth Games since its maiden appearance in 1998 when the South African men's team won the gold medal in Kuala Lumpur.
