USA Player thoughts about T20 Included in Olympics

USA Prefer Olympic T20:

Including cricket sports in Olympics has been a hot debate recently but ICC hasn't come up with a plan yet. Cricket was part of Olympics in early 1900 but it got removed. USA wicket keeper Akeem
Dodson said that he would prefer T20 in Olympics over ICC World Cup Twenty20, calling World T20 a grand stage of cricket while Olympics T20 grand stage of sports. This shortest format of cricket could easily fit in Olympics. Dodson is in full support of T20 cricket to be included in 2024 Olympics in summer. USA missed out narrowly in World Twenty20 qualifier last year, they won three matches and lost 3 matches in qualifying rounds. Getting in to World T20 is biggest goal in USA cricket players but if they get a chance in playing Olympics T20 then it would be a dream come true.

Please let us play the Olympics."
