Default Has cricket ever been played in the Olympic Games?

It has, but it was a long time ago. In 1900 a team called the Devon and Somerset Wanderers, representing Great Britain, beat a French team in the one and only Olympic cricket final, in Paris. Most of the runners-up were from the British Embassy in Paris, and there was only one actual Frenchman in the team (a Monsieur Roques). In a 12-a-side game, the British team scored 117 and 145 for 5 declared, and bowled the expats (and M Roques) out for 78 and 26.
