ICC president Shashank Manohar elaborated on their plans to include cricket in the Olympics roster in the recent future. 

Manohar said this Thursday at Le Meridian Hotel in Dhaka during the second day of his three-day visit to Bangladesh.

During his reception programme, the ICC boss also got to look at the model of the proposed Sheikh Hasina International Cricket Stadium in Purbachal.

BCB chief Nazmul Hasan, the BCB directors, former and current Bangladesh cricket team captains and the Bangladesh women cricketers were also present.

“We are trying to take it to Olympics but there are certain hurdles. The bigger issue is the Olympics is held over 15 days. How do you finish a world event of cricket in 15 days? For that you need cricket stadiums also. Olympics are not held only in cricket playing countries. They are played elsewhere, so to finish the tournament you will need a minimum of four stadiums,” said Manohar.
