We all would’ve been a little disappointed that India has been unable to win any medals. Hence, we at “The Sportsrush” have decided to send a petition to International Olympic Committee to include a list of 5 events and force them to include at least 2 if not all of them. The list of sports was arrived based on how good Indians are, compared to other countries of the world. There are a few that missed the list by close margins and we will send that second list once these five are approved. Please find below that list of 5 events that will ensure a medal for India in Olympics. This list consists of 3 serious events and 2 fun events.
This is a no-brainer selection. India has been one of the best in this game and has a win percentage of more than 60 in T20 world cups and are second only to Sri Lanka. Going by this trend, they should get a silver medal at the least if not gold. Even if India fails to win a medal which is unlikely, it will provide entertainment to the masses. I know, we do give a lot of attention to cricket only, but what is the harm in including it in Olympics?
Similar to football in Olympics, under-23 players can be made to represent the teams. Being the organizing nation of IPL, we should’ve no problems in scouting young talent. If needed, cancel the useless bilateral series’ that are going right now and include the game in Olympics, I say.
Extra Investment: There will be very little extra investment. Existing football grounds can be used for hosting cricket tournament. Probably, the boundaries will be a little short, but boy! we have been used to that in IPL already.
