The China Under-15 team is scheduled to take part in the ACC Under 15 Challenge division in December and to help prepare, they will be receiving coaching from former Pakistan international fast bowler Rashid Khan.

Khan has managed and coached Pakistan Under-19s and the Pakistan A side, and has said it is a honour to be coaching this team. He has also urged the Chinese Cricket Association to expose their teams to international competitions.

China hopes to qualify for the 2019 World Cup, and it is safe to say that today's under-15 players will be providing the backbone of the team come 2019 when they will be in their mid to late 20s. The tournament could well provide us with a glimpse of international cricket's future!
