China eyes cricket medal

Still, the ex-Pakistan Test cricketer told The Associated Press he wants to keep his ambitions in check for the Chinese men’s and women’s teams he is coaching. All tickets for Saturday’s opening day at the 6,500-seat Guanggong Cricket Stadium have been sold. Not surprisingly, a Chinese team will be involved in the first match - the women taking on Malaysia.

Khan says the Asian Games will be an ideal opening for China to move ahead in cricket, and is targeting a semifinal spot for the women’s team which is in a group containing Malaysia, Thailand and Pakistan. China face Pakistan and Bangladesh if they enter the quarterfinals.
