Will cricket be dropped from the 2028 Los Angeles Olympics after Virat Kohli's retirement from T20 cricket?

Cricket Virat Kohli in Olympics: Recently, some such claims have come to the fore that after Virat Kohli's retirement, there is a threat to the playing of cricket in the 2028 Olympics. Since Kohli is one of the most popular athletes in the world, such claims are being made. Let us tell you that the International Cricket Council (ICC) currently has 108 members, out of which only 12 countries are recognized to play Test cricket. Meanwhile, to make cricket popular in Western countries, the T20 World Cup 2024 was organized in the West Indies and the USA. The event was successful, in which India registered a historic victory. Now why is Virat Kohli's retirement being linked to the 2028 Olympics? Actually, there is a valid reason for this too.

Nicolo Campriani, Sports Director of the Los Angeles Olympic Games to be held in 2028, made a big statement about Virat Kohli in a media interview last year. He said that cricket's global presence is not only beneficial for the Olympic Games to be held in Los Angeles but also for the International Olympic Association and the entire cricket community. Kohli's popularity will help in giving cricket a new identity.

Virat Kohli's fan following will benefit

Campriani said, “According to me, Virat Kohli is the third most followed athlete in the world on social media. Even if the number of followers of LeBron James (legendary NBA player), Tom Brady (legendary NFL player) and Tiger Woods (legendary golf player) are combined, Virat's number of followers is more than them. This is a big victory for the Los Angeles Olympic Games 2028, the International Olympic Association and the cricket community. The game of cricket will now be shown on a global level.”

Obstacle due to Virat Kohli's retirement?

There are claims that Virat Kohli's retirement may make the experiment being done on cricket in the Los Angeles Olympics unsuccessful. Since the T20 format will be played in the 2028 Olympics, Kohli has already retired from it. Although Kohli's retirement may affect cricket viewership, cricket will not be removed.
