According to the source, Cricket will make a comeback in Olympics after 10 decades if Italy wins the bid to host 2024 Olympics.

Rome is one of the city which competite to win the bid to host 2024 Olympics alongside with Paris, Los Angeles and Budapest. Under new Olympic regulation it is that the hosting country will have an advantage of adding five sports to Olympics if they are capable of hosting.  France Cricket is attempting to win a similar commitment with the Paris organising committee. 

“If Rome hosts the Olympics, cricket will be included,” Simone Gambino, president of the Federazione Cricket Italiana (FCI) told ESPNcricinfo. “We have had a firm commitment from the organising committee.”

Most probably 12  teams will play , three might come from Europe, three from Asia, two from Africa, two or three from America and the Caribbean and two or three from the South Pacific area. It could well be that some well-known cricket nations – notably England, who are part of the UK in Olympic terms – miss out.
