Twenty20 at the Olympics

Motivated possibly by the shocking lack of Twenty20 competitions being played, Adam Gilchrist is proposing that Twenty20 cricket becomes an Olympic sport. Personally I think it's a great idea, and for me it will actually make me care about the Olympics for a change.

When you consider how many ridiculous sports make the cut, it only makes sense that a sport that's actually popular around the world should be included. The biggest obstacle has always been the length of the game but with Twenty20 only taking 3 hours I think that's overcome.

At this stage it's only a pipe dream, and I wonder if I'll be watching it with my grand kids, if it ever happens, but this Twenty20 juggernaut doesn't look like stopping.
