It is a little known fact that cricket once made an appearance at the Olympic Games, at the second Games in Paris 1900.
Only one match was played with a team from England (Devon & Somerset Wanderers Cricket Club) taking on a French team (made up mostly of Englishmen, British Embassy staff who secured a few days off from the office!).
England won the very one-sided match, scoring 117 & 145 for 5 declared against 78 & 26 in a twelve-a-side match
The lack of competing nations and the one-sided affair did not bode well for further inclusion in the Olympic Games, and it has not been seen on the Olympic program again, and although cricket fans are hopeful it is unlikely to reappear any time soon
