Best Answer

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.
