Cricket in summer olympics 1900 match between GREAT BRITAIN VS FRANCE

ameen 24 February, 2010  

At the 1896 Games in Athens it was intended that cricket would feature, but a lack of entries meant the event was quietly shelved. Four years later in Paris, four teams entered - England, France, Belgium and Holland - but in the event only one match was played, between England and France. Holland and Belgium had originally been touted as co-hosts, but when that idea faltered, their entries went the same way. It was symptomatic of the confusion surrounding the Games - the Olympics at that time were a far cry from the slick modern bonanza. Events took place between May and October at 16 different venues, and the word Olympics was rarely used. The 1900 Games were referred to as part of the Great Exposition or the World's Fair.
