» Google has released new cricket gadgets for Google Desktop users that allows them to get the latest news / cricket scores / match video recordings right in their desktop sidebars.

Cricket Scores - This displays the live scores of current cricket matches on your desktop. You can also view the full detailed scorecards for a match and also check the world cup 2007 cricket schedule.
