Cricket was contested only at the 1900 Olympics, when a British squad beat a French team, which was mostly actually made up of British residents of France. Cricket is governed by the International Cricket Council (ICC), which was founded as Imperial Cricket Conference on 15 June 1909, in London, with three founding members: England, Australia, and South Africa. From 1965 to 1989, the organization was known as the International Cricket Conference. As of 2022, the ICC has 106 national member federations, representing 111 member countries – 12 Full Members (those that play Test cricket) and 94 Associate Members.
The ICC is currently recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC), but there is little chance cricket will return to the Olympic Program iin the form of Test cricket where the matches can last up to five days, as the sport will not fit well into a 2-week program. However, the ICC has promoted the idea of cricket as an Olympic sport by using a shorter form called Twenty20 (also known as T20), with limited overs (20), and only a single innings, and in which each match can be played in 2-3 hours. The IOC has shortlisted cricket, along with eight sports, to bid for a place at the 2028 Games although a return at the 2032 Olympics in the cricket hotbed of Australia would seem more realistic.
