    I would ask Q4 separately as it plays "one unlike the others" in this case. However, Q4 seems speculatory in regards to Cricket but I am open to any factual progress in terms of its (re)introduction to the Olympics. However, your follow up (similar) question has been asked.

Wikipedia offers a pretty good list for this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Olympic_Sports#Summer_Olympics

Football was added 1900. Rugby sevens will be added 2016.

A list of team sports can be found in the list on wikipedia. Team sports in 2012 olympics were volleyball, football, badminton, basketball and handball.

Cricket was in the olympics in 1900 only and there is no info when it will be added again.

IOC decides.
