Australia has joined with former India spinner Shane Warne and Sachin Tendulkar big train frequency that want to re-enter the game of cricket in the Olympics.

He is scheduled to meet the International Olympic Committee (IOC) next month to discuss possible bids, in coordination with the Twenty20 games as possible to discuss the International Cricket Council (ICC).

Cricket has appeared the last time at the Olympic Games in 1900, when Britain had to France in Paris. The ICC since then, has rejected an attempt to include it in the Olympics are afraid that this might make the existing competition like the World Cup to the world and -50 Twenty20 illogical.


As part of an attempt to raise cricket's profile around the globe, the star duo will be responsible for captaining rival teams in a series of three Twenty20 All-Star matches in the United States in November. Their backing for an Olympic bid will increase the pressure on the ICC to reverse its resistance to the idea.

The Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) in July urged the sport's ruling body to try to get the game's Twenty20 international format into the Olympics.The MCC, founded in 1787 and the owner of the Lord's ground where it is based, was formerly the governing body of world cricket and is the guardian of the laws of the game.
Warne said he was in favor of the Twenty20 format for the Olympics, but is open to the idea of indoor cricket being chosen as well. "If it advertises the game of cricket and the skill and athleticism that are involved in a game of cricket then great," he said.

 

"I haven't seen a game of indoor cricket for a long time so I don't know how good indoor cricket is at the moment. But the last time I saw it, it was fantastic - so hopefully they have grown a different skill for it. Ideally, I'd stick to Twenty20 because it's over in three hours, it's easy to organize and you play two or three games a day. I'd include the associate nations because it's helping spread the word of cricket," the leg-spinner concluded
