In the city of Shenzhen in the Chinese province of Guangdong on the border with the Hong Kong special administrative region, a small piece of cricketing history will be made on the 24th of June.

As part of their preparations for July's ACC Women's Tournament in Malaysia, the China and Hong Kong women's national teams will meet in a one-day match. It will be the first ever cricket international between the two sides. China's only previous international was a sixes match against Scotland last year, whilst Hong Kong's previous international action was three heavy defeats to Pakistan last year in regional qualifying for this years Women's World Cup qualifier.

The ACC Women's Tournament is an important one, as the winner of the eight-team event is currently pencilled in to compete in the next Women's Asia Cup, which will have full ODI status.
