Google celebrates ICC 2017 Women's Cricket World Cup with interactive Doodle

So, to celebrate the ICC 2017 Women's Cricket Cup, you can now play cricket.

Needless to say, cricket, a notoriously fussy and complicated game, has been, uh, streamlined. Users draw their computer mouse back in order to take a whack at the ball and play to see how many runs they can get against their opponent. Many cricket fans will no doubt object to the total lack of parliamentary debate over whether that was in fact an out, but hey, we're just dumb Americans, we need all the help we can get understanding our own silly sports, let alone foreign ones.

With the worldwide women's cricket tournament down to the final four, Google has revived the addictive game it first ran for the ICC Champions Trophy earlier this year.

"We wanted to make sure our Doodle works for everyone, including those on slower mobile networks", writes Google on its Google Doodle Blog, "We kept the file size fly-sized, and the result is our smallest interactive Doodle ever - even snail networks can load it in seconds". Host nation England is left standing, along with Australia, India and South Africa - all of whom are vying to play in the final on July 23.
