    Do you think the nations you mentioned are those that are participating in the Olympics? What about other countries that do not play or even expose to the game, cricket? Therefore they may not have the chance to join the game.

    Actually British started this game in all these countries known as Common Wealth Countries during their rule. They wanted to enjoy and spread this game as a pastime and used locals as fielders and enjoyed batting and bowling themselves but once the locals became experts they began to beat them at their own game.

    Yes it is true. Cricket is mostly played in Pakistan, India and Sri Lanka. Maybe it might be related to their traditions. Other parts of the world came to adopt the game much later. We've had professional players from India. But there has been competition from other countries like Kenya though they don't have many professional players. The most popular sport worldwide is football and it has been dominating the fields ever since.

    You want cricket to be an Olympic sport when it's played by only a handful of countries? Lol

    It is true that cricket is a most popular game although only few nations are playing cricket. It is the most popular game as it is easy to understand and play more over the professional career of cricket is full of prosperity as now a days almost all the cricket playing nations have their own leagues to promote the youngsters.

    Cricket is not the most popular sport. Football is the world game, have you see how many people watch football when the World Cup is on? Pretty much the entire world stops to watch the tournament. The Euros and Champions League are very popular as well.

    There is gradual rise of this sport in recent times. The EU countries are also participating, a decade ago they never even had their country team. Cricket is realizing to most of the countries. But it is going to take a lot of time at least 2/3 of country of the whole world need to play this game to make it reachable to Olympics.

    If you want to include every country in the Cricket means it will never happen, Football is the best sport in the world as it is played by people with more majority than Cricket. I too like to play cricket and watching too, but at this age and time can't be able to do both things.
