    Well I think it's a good thing,even if it is only T20. It will make other countries more aware of cricket.On the other hand some countries won't want it & it will depend on how many vote for it.

    make twenty20 world cup quadrennial event then include twenty20 in olympics bu there are some questions regarding its inclusion:

    what about indian players refusal to sign wada code?

    whether england cricket team will play under the name of britain in olympics and what about scotland?

    whether west indian teams will participate separately or there will a combined west indian federation?

    whether non-cricket nations have enough spectators and space to build cricket stadiums which require significantly larger field than football,hockey or even athletic stadiums?

    Best chance to show the world the spirit of cricket....to encourage this sport globally.

    I wish ICC shouldn't miss this golden oppurtunity.

    Need not. We have World cup. If it comes to olymbic, it will take too many time. And ODI World Cup, T20 World cup, Mini World cup, Tri series . . . . Are enough for our Cricket
