• Commonwealth Games wants cricket back at the crease


    MANIKATA, Malta: The Commonwealth Games is in talks with the International Cricket Council about bringing the sport back into the four-yearly event, organizers announced. The Commonwealth Games Federation, which controls the second-biggest multi-sport event after the Olympics, said it was keen to get cricket back on the bill, with the Twenty20 shortest format of the game a particularly “exciting” prospect. Cricket has only featured once at the Commonwealth Games, at the 1998 event in Kuala Lumpur, but CGF chiefs said their 71 national and territorial associations wanted it back in, provided a viable format could be produced.
