The "time is right" for cricket to apply for a place at the Olympics, according to International Cricket Council chief Dave Richardson.

Cricket has not been played at the Summer Games since Great Britain beat France to win gold in 1900.

"I think the majority of the members - and certainly myself - think the time is right," said Richardson.
