What is the cricket cartoon on the Google homepage on 15 March 2017?

The Google Doodle used in some countries on 15 March 2017 marks the 140th anniversary of Test cricket. The first international cricket match was played in 1877 between England and Australia at Melbourne. Australia won by 45 runs but the series was drawn 1-1. The doodle was only used by Google for users in Australia and India, not - for some reason - in England.
