ICC’s offer to include cricket in the T20 format at the 2028 Los Angeles Olympics

The Board voted, in principle, to support the ICC’s offer to include cricket in the T20 format at the 2028 Los Angeles Olympics.

On Thursday, the governing body of the BCCI ratified the entry into the IPL of two new franchises to make it a 10-team affair here from 2022 during its Annual General Meeting (AGM).

In another important change, the Board voted in principle to support the ICC’s offer to include cricket in the T20 format at the 2028 Los Angeles Olympics, “After getting some clarifications from the International Olympic Committee”.

“Two new teams will be introduced in the 2022 IPL,” a board source told PTI.

It was also determined that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all first-class teams, both men and women, would be adequately paid for the curtailed domestic season.

After several months’ delay, the BCCI plans to get the domestic season underway with the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 championship in January.

In other decisions, veteran Congressional leader Rajiv Shukla was formally named vice president of the Board in place of his Uttarakhand protege, Mahim Verma.

It was also learned that the general body had agreed in favor of the continuation of Sourav Ganguly as director of the ICC Board.

At the Chief Executive Committee meetings of the global body, Secretary Jay Shah will be the alternate director as well as India’s delegate.
