A group of schoolchildren is travelling to Beijing to teach their Chinese counterparts the rules of cricket.
The nine boys and two girls, aged 13 and 14, from King Edward VII School in King's Lynn, Norfolk, will help boost China's bid to become a Test nation.
As well as teaching them the game, they will also translate the rules of cricket into Mandarin.
The 10-day visit in July is part of the school's twinning scheme with Tsinghua High School in Chongqing.
The school's director of sport, Paul Tebay, said: "I believe we're the first school to do this and we aim to show that young people can teach and learn from each other.
"If the Chinese take cricket seriously and treat it as a priority, I think they will do very well."
