Google celebrates first official test cricket match with a colourful sketch doodle
Today's doodle on Google's home page marks the 140th anniversary of the first official Test cricket played in 1877.

The internet search engine giant has put up a sketch doodle showing five players in action with letters of the logo on them and use of different colours on the sport-gears.

It may be recalled that the first Test match played between England and Australia in 1877 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) was won by the host team by 45 runs.

According to Google, the doodle 'hits the deck with a light-hearted rendering that captures the spirit of sportsmanship and the inaugural Test match'. The high point of the doodle is the depiction of the players who are with moustaches and stout consisting of batsmen, bowlers and fielders in loud actions while playing with the red ball.

Charles Bannerman became the first centurion in Test cricket by scoring 165. However, the series had ended in a draw.
