BCCI did this work

The role of the Indian Cricket Board (BCCI) cannot be denied in this, whose positive attitude means increasing interest of broadcasters in this. A senior ICC board member told PTI on the condition of anonymity, ‘The BCCI supported it from the beginning, understanding the importance of the global game and especially its partners who stand to gain from being a part of the Olympic movement. After this BCCI Secretary Jai (Shah) joined the working group and supported everything.

ICC gave a great presentation

The presentation made by the ICC to the IOC and the Local Organizing Committee of the Olympic Games 2028 was mainly based on the three principles of universality, popularity and legacy. Universality means the appeal of cricket and the support it provides to the Olympic movement. The ICC emphasized that India is the most populous country in the world and has a large TV and digital market. Both the IOC and the local organizing committee will benefit from the broadcast revenue from India.

Popularity is the most important aspect

Popularity is the most important aspect and cricket is the second most popular sport in the world which has huge commercial appeal. When the world’s best cricketers become a part of the Olympic Games, it will only benefit the sports. It will be challenging for cricket to create a legacy in a new market like America but this country will host the T20 World Cup next year and how things will progress can be gauged from this tournament.
