“These proposals have been accepted as a package by the IOC executive board taking into consideration that these proposals and these sports are fully in line with the sports culture of our host in ’28, with the American sports culture,”. Bach was quoted by ESPNcricinfo.

He further said that

“They will showcase iconic American sports to the world while bringing at the same time international sports to the United States. The inclusion will, on the other hand, allow the Olympics to engage with new athletes and fan communities in the US and globally,”. He concluded.

“This is a win-win situation. The Olympic Games will give cricket a global stage and the opportunity to grow beyond the traditional cricket countries and regions. We see it in India where you see the growing Olympic spirit. Where you see a number of Olympic sports gaining strength and becoming popular. And cricket still being the No. 1 sport and the most popular sport,” he said.

The Indian cricket team won the gold medal in the Asian games held in China. However, Indian team sent a second string side for the Asian Games.
