Great Britain at the 1900 Games in Paris.
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.
