Cricket in China

Chinese people's favourite game is Table Tennis. They call it as "Ping pong ball". The Table tennis playes are treated as heroes here.

The Chinese Basket ball player "Yao Ming" who plays in NBA is very popular personality in China. We can find his posters almost everywhere in the city.

"Chinese people doesnt know about Cricket." - This was my opinion before coming here.

The fact is ....There is a Club Cricket Championship going on here (20-20 style). Almost 10 league teams are there. They participate in a 20-20 League Championship trophy every year.

So, slowly Cricket is coming up here.
