Description

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 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. The ICC is currently recognized by the IOC, but there is little chance it will return to the Olympic Program as the sport will not fit well into a 2-week program. As of 2018 the ICC has 104 national member federations – 12 Full Members (those that play Test Cricket) and 92 Associate Members.
