IOC Approves Inclusion of Cricket in Olympics 2028 in Los Angeles

Mumbai: Cricket and four other new sports will be included at the 2028 Olympic Games in Los Angeles. International Olympic Committee’s session in Mumbai approved cricket, baseball/softball, flag football, squash and lacrosse for inclusion in the 2028 Olympics.

A week back, the IOC’s executive board accepted a proposal by LA organisers for Twenty20 cricket to be included along with the four other new events. The final choice was voted on Monday at the IOC session in Mumbai.

But no decision has been made on the number of teams, or how they will qualify to the Olympics.

Cricket last featured at the 1900 Paris Olympics, when a team from Britain beat a side representing France.
