    Both China and Myanmar are clearly not ready to participate in a senior tournament of such level at this stage especially as most of their players are still youngsters? The ACC should possibly have 3 divisions with 6-7 countries in each? That would be fairer especially for the bottom tiered teams. Time will tell though those who are seeing China as a money maker should get a part time job in the meantime!!
