Lausanne: Intl Olympic Committee Recognises Cricket


Lausanne, Dec 12: The International Olympic Committee gave cricket the status of a "recognised sport" after the first day of its executive committee meeting on Monday.

Cricket was given this status, for sports not in the Olympic programme but which confirm to certain criteria of the movement in terms of youth promotion and anti-doping policies, for a two-year period.

"Cricket will benefit from this status for two years and could receive it permanently in 2009," said IOC communications director Gisele Davies.
