Cricket can bid for being part of 2020 Olympics

#1
MUMBAI: Cricket's push to be a part of the Olympic Games has been helped with the the International Olympic Committee (IOC) granting recognition to cricket's governing body, the International Cricket Council (ICC).

The IOC session approved its Executive Board’s decision to convert the ‘provisional’ recognition of the ICC to ‘full recognition’.

The IOC, at its meeting in Vancouver, also recognised the federations of sport climbing and power boating. The three sports can now bid to join the 2020 Olympics as the programme is always determined seven years in advance.

IOC director of communications Mark Adams has been quoted in reports saying that it could be seen as the first step towards becoming Olympic sports.

ICC CEO Haroon Lorgat said, “The ICC is extremely proud of the recognition given to our great sport by the IOC which we always considered to be our first step in becoming a part of the Olympic family. At this stage no consideration or decision has been made regarding participation or applying for approval to participate in the Olympic Games.”
