The 2028 Olympic Games in Los Angeles will feature men’s and women’s cricket.
Cricket will once again be an Olympic sport in 2028, after International Olympic Committee members voted to include the sport in the Los Angeles Games.
Cricket will appear for the first time since 1900, with both the men’s and women’s game to be included.
Richard Gould, ECB Chief Executive Officer, said: “It’s fantastic that cricket will be included in the Olympics in 2028, putting it on one of the world’s biggest sporting stages. This is a great opportunity to take cricket to new parts of the world, and to allow more people to develop a love for our sport.
“In particular I’m delighted that the Games will feature both men’s and women’s cricket, and have no doubt that featuring in the Olympics will accelerate the continuing and rapid growth of the women’s game.”
