Google celebrates launch of ICC Champions Trophy with a mini game Doodle

Google’s doodle for the champions trophy is pretty fun to play!

Google is known to celebrate anniversaries, birthdays, historic milestones and achievements throughout the world through their interesting, clever and fun Doodles.

With the launch of ICC Champions trophy today, Google is celebrating it with an interactive Doodle. What’s so special about this Doodle is that it does not take you to a page full of information when you click on it, instead it launches a mini cricket game where you take the role of a batsman.

The game is simple yet clever and fun to play. You only have to tap the screen to swing the bat when the ball comes near you. Hit it and it may go for a four or six, miss it and you’re out.

To play the game just head to Google.com

To make things even more fun, the batsmen in the game are actual crickets and the fielders are snails which are a reference to Google promising that the game would work on the slowest of networks.
