Cricket Venues in Google Earth

Last week I was told about an article at GoogleMapsMania about a mashup for international test Cricket venues which also had Google Earth support. After noticing a problem with the download, I contacted the author of the Cricketing Yak and explained how to set up the Google Earth file on his server by setting the mime-types. You can easily download the Cricket venues for the UK and Australia now (he plans to add more areas later for GE). Each placemark shows the actual field/stadium in GE’s satellite photos where cricket is played, and the descriptions provide photos, local weather, and a link to scores. Other countries are displayed in the Google Maps version.

  1. Can I find a stadium, when a match is played ?
    If yes, is it possible to recognize any particular player ?
    If yes, is it possible to find the famous soccer player – Ronaldo ?
