    This may have been forthcoming for sometime now…That’s why the ICU could confidently organize a meaningful tour of Bangladesh in March next year…With cricket now gaining recognition as an Olympic sport, the ICU can expect additional funding that could help them retain players and organize more tours…Looks like things are getting better for them…

    What does it mean btw, that Cricket has gained Olympic recognition?
    Is it already included as an event in the 2012 event? Or still not. If not then what does the recognition mean?

    The current recognition is the first step towards inclusion in the Olympics. If the recognition is made permenant in 2009, then cricket will be able to apply for inclusion in the Olympics when the sport list is next considered after the 2012 Olympics. The earliest we are likely to see cricket in the Olympics is, quite appropriately, 2020.

    When do cricket boards in countries become eligible to get money from the Olympics fund in their respective countries? After permanent recognition?

    That’s up to the Olympic Committee in the individual country.

    There’s a lot of hoops to jump through before any sport can be played at the Olympics, There’s certainly only an outside chance of Cricket in 2020.
    Various other sports, Rugby, Golf and Karate for example are further along the line, and there is only enough room for one more sport at the moment IIRC. I beleive all of the above failed to be voted on to the Olympic roster last time there was a vote.
