In case you missed it, the Google doodle for the ICC Champions Trophy had a small flash game attached to it. As the ICC Champions Trophy begun, it was time Google got in on the hype and celebrated cricket’s never-quenched excitement since the IPL started. The 2017 ICC Champions Trophy is second only to the Cricket World Cup and since teams play for countries, for some – it’s a larger matter of pride at stake.
The Google doodle is a small flash cricket game where you play as a grasshopper against a team of snail fielders and one snail bowler. The objective is simple: click the mouse at the right time to make contact with the ball and scores 4s, 6s and 1 runs. If you miss the ball, you are out of the game. You can then compare scores with your friends. Just like the fun created around the Olympic doodles, Google aims to make its games the perfect tiny getaway for people stuck at work. In fact, the Olympic doodle games may have won more viewers than the Olympics themselves; considering how popular the games had become.
The Indian High Commission in London was host to a reception on Monday for the Indian cricket team who are currently in England for the ICC Champions Trophy 2017. Notable players were all present at the high-profile dinner, suited up for the occasion.
