General
NATIONAL FIRST
In 2012 he became the first cricketer from mainland China to play in an overseas league, representing Cleethorpes Cricket Club in the Lincolnshire League in England. (theguardian.com, 18 Aug 2012)

EARLY DAYS IN ENGLAND
The different methods in England caught him by surprise when he first went there to play. "When I started, I thought you bowled from just one end, because that's how it is in China, with a mat on top of concrete." (theguardian.com, 18 Aug 2012)

FROM SHENYANG TO CLEETHORPES
He was spotted by former Cleethorpes Cricket Club player Matt Smith who had gone to Shenyang to teach English at the local Aerospace University. Smith played against his university and was impressed with what he saw. "I thought he was one of the very few players in the country who really was a cricketer. He just had that little bit of understanding of when to play and when to leave it, and how to build an innings." On a return trip to England, Smith was talking about his cricket experiences in China and friends from Cleethorpes CC jokingly encouraged him to send some players, but Smith took the suggestion seriously. Jiang acquired a special six-month sports visa, and his parents paid his living costs while Smith paid his travel costs. (theguardian.com, 18 Aug 2012)
