ICC Chairman reveals how cricket can enter the Olympics

ICC Chairman Shashank Manohar is in Dhaka to watch the final of the Bangladesh Premier League, and has spoken about some key issues revolving around the expansion of cricket to an even greater scale in world sports.

One of the key issues was related to cricket’s entry into the Olympics, something that has become a huge topic of debate lately.

Manohar said on Friday, “We are trying to take it to Olympics but there are certain hurdles. The bigger issue is the Olympics is held over 15 days. How do you finish a world event of cricket in fifteen days?”

“For that, you need cricket stadiums also. Olympics are not held only in cricket-playing countries. They are played elsewhere, so to finish the tournament you will need a minimum of four stadiums.”
