The world’s largest search engine, Google celebrated the opening of the cricket’s biggest carnival with one of its famous home page ‘Doodles’ to give cricket fans something to cheer for on the search engine.
On the Google home page, the ‘O’ and ‘L’ in the logo were replaced by a ball and wickets respectively, which then turned into a cartoon of a player delivering a ball and another catching it. When clicked on, turns into an animation of a bowler running up, a batsman hitting the ball, and a fielder catching it.
Once you click the doodle, you are taken to a search page which shows details of the matches, news, schedule and standings of teams playing in the tournament. This doodle had a reach in countries like India, Pakistan, hosts United Kingdom, Iceland, South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand.
