    I think this is good for the game of cricket. China is a huge country and promoting cricket there will be a huge step in making cricket popular worldwide. The students in universities and schools are already playing cricket. Probably in ten to fifteen years, China will have its own professional cricket team and it will be fun watching them play cricket.
