31 March 2017 Current Affairs: The ICC (International Cricket Council) is set to bid for inclusion of cricket, in its Twenty20 format, in the 2024 Olympic Games.
ICC will take a decision in June.
If ICC’s bid is accepted by the IOC (International Olympic Committee), cricket will return to the Olympics fold for the first time in 124 years. Cricket last appeared at the 1900 Paris Olympics when only two teams - Great Britain and France - were involved.
The International Olympic Committee (IOC) will choose between 2024 bid cities Paris and Los Angeles at a meeting in Lima in September, with new sports also under consideration.
