Four years later, cricket was included in the Paris Olympics, in which two teams were involved. These teams were France and England. Only one final match was held between them, in which England won.
This match lasted only two days and the result was out. In this match, 12-12 players played from both the teams. After winning the match, the silver medal was given to the winner Great Britain and the bronze medal to the runner-up France. But the Olympics recorded this match after 12 years. After this England was given gold and France was given silver medal.
