For a sport to be included in the Olympics it must be widely played by men and women, in at least 75 and 50 countries, respectively and on four continents.
Cricket doesn't have the global appeal but with the advent of Twenty20 Cricket, there are currently some moves to try and have cricket added for the 2020 Olympic Games.

Of the current sports, that would be field hockey which first appeared at the 1908 Olympic Games. Basque pelota, cricket, croquet, golf and polo all debuted at the 1900 Olympic Games but over time have been discontinued.
skater. cricket isnt played around the world
Yes, Cricket was played as an Olympic Sport in the 1900 Paris games. But due to lack of interest it was dropped. The reason why it has not featured since is because the IOC failed to recognise it as a sport! In 2007 this changed when the IOC provisionally recognised it as a sport. But the earliest games it could appear in will be 2020.
