Devon and Somerset Wanderers of England won the gold medal for Cricket, when it was last played at the 1900 Paris Olympic Games.
Initially, four teams were supposed to play in 1900 Summer Olympics, in Paris. Belgium and Netherlands were supposed to co-host the 1900 Olympics, but when their bids failed they pulled out their names from Cricket. So, the remaining two teams, France and England contested for honours.
England was represented by a touring club named Devon and Somerset Wanderers. The Host team named the “French Athletic Club Union” consisted players from two clubs—Union Cub and the Standard Athletic Club, the majority of whom were British immigrants.
