In the International Spotlight…China Cricket



The Chinese cricket team is the team that represents the country of
the People’s Republic of China in international cricket. They became an International Cricket Council affiliate member in 2004. It should be noted that the Special
administrative region of Hong Kong is a member of the ICC in their own right, becoming an ICC associate member in 1969. Hence, players from Hong Kong are not
eligible to represent China in international competition.

Prior to the establishment of a recognised national side, the Shanghai Cricket
Club, the largest club in the country, played games against many touring
sides and effectively served as a defacto national side.

China are yet to participate in any international competition, though they
hope to participate in the for the first time in 2008. In addition to this goal, the Chinese Cricket Association has set itself other goals over the next 14 years, described by some as optimistic. A list of these goals follows:

  • Have 720 teams across the country in a well-organised structure
  • Have 20,000 players and 2,000 coaches
  • Qualify for the 2019 Cricket World Cup
  • Gain Test status
