London: Batting legend Sachin Tendulkar and veteran leg-spinner Shane Warne want T20 cricket to become an Olympic sport.

“I’d love to see it as an Olympic sport and, who knows, down the track it might be,” Warne was quoted as saying by BBC on Monday. He pressed that T20 is easy to organise if taken under Olympic fold.

Tendulkar said, “I think it’s a great idea and I reckon T20 is the best format for it.”

Warne and Tendulkar are captaining rival teams in a series of three Twenty20 All Star matches in the United States in November as they seek to use their fame to help globalize cricket.

Cricket has not featured in Olympics since 1900 but the International Cricket Council (ICC) is meeting the International Olympic Committee (IOC) next month to discuss a possible bid.

Following its board meeting in October, the ICC announced that its chief executive David Richardson and director Giles Clarke would hold talks with the IOC in November.
