    Hardly a communist country apart from title anymore, and its not like the ICC have a glowing reputation that the Chinese might tarnish

    Early India after independence came under huge communist influence (Nehru saw China as a very useful country indeed to get into bed with for a time). Of course, the Ladakh situation changed all that.

    It's not about China no longer being truly Communist, that is blatantly obvious. What I mean is that we should not allow dictatorships that engage in wholesale oppression of their peoples to enter into world cricket. There is no democracy in China, nor any intention of it being introduced. Neither is there a transparent justice system. Zimbabwe has taught us that human rights aren't important to the ICC, so doubtless China will eventually get in. When the Chinese want to be good at a sport, they get very good at it, usually very fast. I have nothing against the Chinese people, but I do have a lot against dictatorships, and I do not think that another one should be allowed into the cricket world.

    I don't think it's the role of the ICC to take a political stance over China, especially the way that they have abrogated any responsibility with respect to Zimbabwe.

    Lets hope the athletes aren't worried about reading a non government controlled newspaper or watching television that hasn't been rigerously censored.. Oh and the smog!

    The real point is, why have more than a quarter of the world's population been denied the games for so long?

    The Communist government will censor all the games China loses, so this may not be such a good thing.

    There wouldn't be much variation in their bowling attack, would there? They'd all bowl left-arm leg-spin

    Testeles, but I relate.

    After training on Thursday night whilst sitting back in the rooms we saw a few blokes having a go in the nets. The bowler was of Asian decent, I heard a comment from across the room; "He's bowling right-arm chinamen".

    Yikes.

    No, they'd all bowl left-arm wristspin.
