China have recruited former Pakistan Test player Rashid Khan to coach the national team for the 2010 Asian Games in Beijing. He has been coaching China's junior and women's teams since 2006.

"To prepare a cricket team for the Asian Games is a big challenge but the Chinese have a lot of pride in what they do," Khan told Reuters. "I have been given this responsibility now."

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Martin Williamson
Executive editor Martin Williamson joined the Wisden website in its planning stages in 2001 after failing to make his millions in the internet boom when managing editor of Sportal. Before that he was in charge of Sky Sports Online and helped launch and run Sky News Online. With a preference for all things old (except his wife and children), he has recently confounded colleagues by displaying an uncharacteristic fondness for Twenty20 cricket. His enthusiasm for the game is sadly not matched by his ability, but he remains convinced that he might be a late developer and perseveres in the hope of an England call-up with his middle-order batting and non-spinning offbreaks. He is now managing editor of ESPN EMEA Digital Group as well as his Cricinfo responsibilities.
