We look back at Birmingham's bid and how it won over the Commonwealth Games Federation with its campaign.
The 2022 Commonwealth Games, to be held in Birmingham, may see the return of cricket and exclusion of shooting, according to a report published on The Indian Express on Thursday. Shooting has been contested at every Commonwealth Games since the one in Kingston in 1966, with the only exception of Edinburgh in 1970.
The forthcoming 2018 Games will be staged on Australia's Gold Coast. Ian Ward, Leader of the Birmingham City Council and head of the CWG bid declared that Shooting will be excluded from the programme.
"The vast majority of the Games venues are in place and with extensive experience in the United Kingdom of hosting successful major events, including Manchester 2002, London 2012 and Glasgow 2014, the CGF looks forward to a truly spectacular Games that delivers not only for the 2.4 billion citizens across the Commonwealth, but the wider world, too", Martin added. NRAI president Raninder Singh is hopeful that shooting will soon include in the games. Although the suggestion to add a mixed-team cricket event has not been discussed formally yet, the Birmingham bid officials are in touch with the England and Wales Cricket Board to study the prospect of having separate men's and women's T20 cricket. Out of the 438 medals India has won at the Games, including 155 gold, 118 have come from shooting.
