  • 2020: Gain Test status

The talent pool in China has been improving, and in the national cricket championships of 2011, 48 schools took part, 21 more than the previous year.[4] Cricket's growing popularity was underlined by the fact when the north-eastern city of Daqing and the north-eastern province of Heilongjiang became the ninth province in China to take to cricket, although they were part of a snowy and wintry atmosphere, and playing cricket there was not easy.[5] In 2015, the Chinese Women’s team played in Group B of the 2015 ICC Women's World Twenty20 Qualifier, however did not progress through to the 2016 ICC Women's World Twenty20.[6]

The ICC reported approximately 45,000 male players and 35,000 female players in China by April 2016, and is to work with the CCA to develop long term development strategy.[6]
