The 2028 Los Angeles Olympics will feature the T20 format, according to International Cricket Council (ICC) chief executive Geoff Allardice.

He said that in a few months, it would be decided whether or not the ICC would be allowed to enter cricket for the LA Games.

The Olympics seek to present a format with a World Championship. Given this, we will recommend T20 cricket, the shortest format, for inclusion in the Olympic Games, the ICC CEO said during a media round table here before the Board meeting. The much-awaited Major League Cricket, which has six franchises and four IPL owners, officially began play on Thursday.

Name of the Franchises:

While Chennai Super Kings owns the Texas team, Mumbai Indians own New York. Delhi Capitals own Seattle Orcas, and Kolkata Knight Riders own the Los Angeles team.
The MLC would boost interest in the sport, according to the ICC chief executive.

The game is becoming more well-known in the USA as a result of a number of factors. One of them is the beginning of the MLC; they greatly increase interest in the sport.

In addition, he confirmed that, in contrast to rumours that it would be held in the UK, the Men's T20 World Cup 2024 will be jointly hosted by USA Cricket and Cricket West Indies.


"I can state unequivocally that the West Indies and the United States will host the men's T20 World Cup in 2024."

"Sports awareness will continue to grow thanks to the men's T20 World Cup. For the past 18 to 20 years, we have been communicating. The communication with LA Olympics officials is for spreading the word about cricket.

It can reach a much wider audience than simply those interested in international cricket. It is bringing a lot of content to venues, broadcasters, and fans. So, one strategy for promoting our sport is the establishment of franchise leagues.

The amount of work in that sector has increased. One of the topics is how to balance the calendar and organise international cricket.
A great strategy to promote cricket is to hold a domestic league including the best players from that nation. In several areas, we have achieved progress. It is altering the game's dynamics, and many of those changes have been advantageous, he continued.
