Google Australia and Google New Zealand released an identical doodle for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 Final at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG). This will be the first ever trans-tasman World Cup final, with New Zealand going past the semi-final for the very first time in seven attempts. On the other hand, it is Australia’s seventh World Cup final, having already won the title in 1987, 1999, 2003, and 2007.
