  • This Google Doodle Cricket Game Is Today's Best Distraction

In honor of the ICC Women's Cricket World Cup, Google's Doodle for today is an interactive cricket game.

In the meantime, you can play the game (very fun and easy to get lost in) and tell your English friends you understand cricket now. The game was first introduced last month to mark the men's ICC Championships. It's Google's smallest interactive Doodle ever.

Players can take their matches on the go, as Google "kept the file size fly-sized" so that it can work on mobile networks or slow connections.
