Cricket was part of 1900 Paris Olympics ,So if ICC is successful in persuading IOC to add cricket (T20) to the list of events it would be a come back for cricket in Olympics.

Also the list of cricketers for cricket in Olympics seems to be growing fast after Gilly stared it.

ScreenHunter_02 Aug. 13 23.17

While every body accepts that opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympics 2008 was a visual spectacle .In an attempt for flawless perfection China got a good looking girl to lip sync a song for official singer who according them was Not Pretty enough .

ScreenHunter_01 Aug. 13 22.48Nine-year-old Lin Miaoke becomes instant star with patriotic song.But the real voice behind the tiny, pigtailed girl in the red dress who wowed 91,000 spectators at the National Stadium on opening night really belonged to 7-year-old Yang Peiyi. Her looks apparently failed the cuteness test with officials organizing the ceremony.

This incident shows how obsessed China was with perfection and beauty at the Beijing Olympics

And you thought talent is what that matters.
