France challenges England /Cricket/Olympics/

England faces century-old Olympic cricket challenge from former enemy France - Telegraph
The fixture could reopen the debate about the origins of the sport, which recent research suggests may have originated in continental Europe rather than Hampshire as generally believed.

The first, and only, Olympic medals for cricket were won at the Paris Games of 1900 when England beat France by 158 runs in a two-day final in the Vincennes velodrome. Cricket is no longer an Olympic sport.

Now the French national cricket association, France Cricket, has challenged England to a return game in Lille just before the London Olympics in 2012, according to the Independent newspaper.
