Am a member of the ICC, but am not clarifying whether full/associate/etc.
Very little progress in the game since starting it, but with good reason.
Almost all my players are/were immigrants to my land.

Notably, a major cricketing nation's 'A' team is visiting me soon to boost my cricket development.
Actually, I shall not be meeting them with my national team, but instead with a team that consists of players with a particular qualification from all over the world.
Global players for this team include some from Australia and South Africa.
In fact, one country had objected to my entry into the ICC, and for non cricketing reasons.
Later, in an international tournament in another country, I had faced protests for the same reason.
Am/was coached by another cricketer, one of the greatest his country has produced.

Again, read the question again, the answer is in the Q itself. *China*
Update 5: Nope. Not Phillipines either.
Update 6: Again, Japan is in Asia as well as the ACC.

Okay major clue: How is the Chinese script read?
Update 7: East-Asia Pacific is not another 'continent'. C'mon, I've already given the major clue.
Update 8: Good guess, Ben, but it doesn't match the other criteria.
Update 9: That's right Ben!!!! See if you can answer the remaining points too.
