Chinese design and cricket

30 Mar

So the BRICS summit finished without the leaders agreeing to a new development bank, though they didn’t throw away the idea. It’s not that surprising since there’re several major things they need to agree on, such as where it’ll be based and the financial commitment each must pledge, but in time they’ll likely work out these issues.

Today’s random link shows off Chinese design. China is well-known as a manufacturer of objects, but as for design, not so much. These objects are an attempt to change that, combining China’s heritage with everyday objects. To see more Chinese design, this site which I just found seems to be a good place, combining news about the latest developments in all aspects of design such as architecture, product design, and fashion.

China participates in many sports, but cricket? Yes, though mainly at grassroots and youth level, as this cricinfo article describes. There are several leagues in the big cities like Shanghai and Guangzhou, with several promising Chinese players mentioned in detail.
