Sometimes i feel the Olympics Organization is pretty discriminatory...
You must be thinking Why?
Well in my opinion they must include Cricket (at least the 20 20 format) immediately in Olympics,because Cricket is a pretty old Sport and deserves a place in the Mega Sports Event like Olympics...
ICC Chief Executive Officer Malcolm Speed
And Cricket is not the only game that has been left out of Olympics But another one is Squash
Well even if Olympics Organization argues about Cricket as being a very time consuming game But then what reason would they present for Squash?
P.S i had heard that sometime back squash was a part of the Olympics But then why did Olympics Organization abandon it?
And whats your opinion about this DISCUSSION...Please Comment...
20/20 Cricket in the olympics is a good idea, but it puts the West Indian nations at a disadvantage
They are used to playing as a combined team for all cricket tournaments, but come olympics they would have to play as individual countries (Jamaica, ST Kitts & Nevis, Grenada, etc)
Good idea though, i hope it goes ahead
As for Squash, i thought it was an olympic sport?
You're thinking of the Commonwealth Games, it's in there.
As for cricket and squash being in the Olympics, I say why not? 20/20 Cricket would work well for the Olympics.
