Google welcomes Women's Cricket World Cup with amusing doodle

Posted June 25, 2017

In the ICC Women's World Cup, which started on Saturday in England, India taking on the hosts England put a mammoth total of 281/3 on the scoreboard. During her 18-year global career since debut in 1999, the current Indian skipper has smashed many records.

In reply, England opened with a notable returnee, as Sarah Taylor stepped in for the absent Lauren Winfield in her first full global appearance for more than a year.

2 - Mithali is only the second cricketer in the women's game to score over 5000 runs in ODIs.

ICC Women's World Cup started in 1973, and out of the ten editions, Australia have become champions six times.

"Considering how well this team is doing and if they continue and even get to the semi-finals, it will be a big achievement in itself and have a huge impact back home".

Mithali Raj smashed a brilliant 71 off 84 balls to guide team India 281 in 50 overs for the loss of 3 wickets. What stood out for India was their fielding as they inflicted four runouts.

"We thought it would do a little more but to be honest I don't think we put it in the right areas".

The doodle allows you to play a fun, interactive and simple game of cricket. "But it depends on how you market a product - people will be interested if you market it well", she added. Raj made her debut way back in 1999. Otherwise a good sweeper of the ball, Sciver gloved it behind the stumps to Sushma Verma who pulled off a smart one-handed catch to her left.

How could Australia miss this chance, and here we are with their host-manship and winning flag flying up in the year 1988 where the Australian team hosted as well as bagged the glittering trophy. "The T20 World Cup (also held in India in 2016 simultaneously with the men's) was a big opportunity and the awareness today is building on that", Upendran opined. A fixture like this will not only galvanise both teams and the loyal fans who come to see the match, but also positively impact Bristol's wider cricket scene, drawing worldwide attention before and after match day.

Only Australia had ever managed to successfully overhaul a bigger target in women's one-day worldwide history, and victory for England would have comfortably eclipsed their own previous record run chase, which was the 243 they scored to beat New Zealand in 2008.
