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.'
