One of the biggest obstacles that cricket faces is the fact that it doesn’t have a governing body like other Olympic sports.
Cricket is played by millions of people all over the world, but they don’t have any official governing body. This means that there is no one to maintain standards for the game and there isn’t one tournament for all countries to play in.
Cricket is not an Olympic sport because there are too many rules and regulations surrounding it which would make it hard for players to compete internationally.
