Cricket lovers you have been forewarned. China is starting to take cricket seriously. They love the strategic thinking and fast turnaround of the game they call quin ban (or something like that).

"The government is interested because they feel they can excel in cricket," he says.

"If the Chinese government backs something, they can make people interested."

Even Scotlands aimimg to get to international standard.

Cricket? Scotland? Bah. Never!

Football, Rugby, Golf. In that order.

Each nation are bound to spew a lot of jokes (savoury and unsavoury ) though.

A 'yorker' may become a choker.

The term 'chinaman' will become non PC . A left-hander's googly , a pitch that looks as if it could break INTO a right-handed batter on the bounce, but breaks AWAY instead. So called because the first person to have bowled such a devilish leg-break was of Chinese extraction , Ellis "Puss" Achong, a spinner in the 1933 West Indies team!

"Zenmeyang!" That's Mandarin for "Howzat!" and 'qui ban' for cricket.

So the term, it's not cricket could become 'It's not qui ban.'

Yes, I can see lots of potential in Zen cricket.

Now, Scotland's contribution to the game ...

Kim Jong-il is best at cricket. During dear leader's first game he scored three home runs and a hole-in-one
