The Cricket Association of China, in a letter sent to the Pakistan Cricket Board, has praised the services of former Test player Rashid Khan who has been working with it as coach for the last two months. Rashid was sent as coach to China by the board after they received a request from the Asian Cricket Council to nominate someone for the coaching assignment.

“There is a lot of enthusiasm for cricket in China and the best part is they have all local players. They are a very determined and disciplined lot and I have no doubt that if they put their mind to it they will emerge as a good cricketing force soon,” Rashid told Dawn newspaper.

Rashid has also received a coaching offer from Saudi Arabia Cricket Association after his fine work with the Chinese.
