Cricket’s historic inclusion in the 2028 Los Angeles Olympics was officially confirmed at the 141st IOC Session in Mumbai. This announcement marks a significant moment for a sport that has transcended its Commonwealth origins.

Cricket’s first taste of the multi-sport stage came in 1998 at the Commonwealth Games in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. South Africa emerged victorious, claiming gold by defeating Australia in a thrilling final, while New Zealand secured the bronze.

The event boasted an impressive roster of cricket legends, with India’s Sachin Tendulkar, VVS Laxman, Harbhajan Singh, and Anil Kumble, alongside Australia’s star-studded team featuring Steve Waugh, Mark Waugh, Tom Moody, Ricky Ponting, and Adam Gilchrist. South Africa’s lineup included Shaun Pollock, Herschelle Gibbs, Jacques Kallis, Makhaya Ntini, and Mark Boucher.
