The target is to get cricket back into the Olympics for the first time since 1900. Cricket has been shortlisted for possible inclusion at the 2028 Olympics along with eight other sports and the International Cricket Council (ICC) will make a presentation to organizers later this month. The host city can include any sport but needs the approval of the International Olympic Committee (IOC).

The ambitious “Where the Game Grows” plan released on Monday aims to double the number of children aged five to 12 playing the game to 210,000 over the next five years, with girls making up 60,000 of that tally.

Women’s T20I cricket made its Commonwealth Games debut in Birmingham last month. Australia beat India by nine runs in the final to claim the inaugural gold medal.

Brisbane has plans to rebuild the city’s Gabba cricket ground as a 50,000-seater Olympic Stadium to host the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2032 Games.
