South Korean organizers of the next Asian Games in Incheon have proposed cutting sports such as cricket and dance from the 2014 program.

The Olympic Council of Asia has decided to cap the number of sports at future Asian Games at 35 _ 28 from the Olympic program and seven more that reflect the region's culture.

The Guangzhou Games starting Friday includes 42 sports.

The OCA on Thursday said Incheon organizers submitted a list that includes the non-Olympic sports of baseball, bowling, kabaddi, sepak takraw, softball, squash and wushu.

Existing sports missing from that list include cricket, cue sports, dance sport, dragon boat racing, roller sports and chess.
The OCA will decide the 2014 sports program on the weekend.
