Google doodle marks World T20 beginning

Kolkata, March 7 (IANS) Internet giant Google has cashed in on the World Twenty 20 fever with a new colourful doodle on its home page which shows a cricket game in progress at a stadium.

Google’s doodles are intended to celebrate holidays, events, achievements and people. The current doodle was unveiled on Monday ahead of the event which starts on March 8.

The event will be played across 7 venues in India with 16 teams participating in it and the final will be held at the historic Eden Gardens here on April 3.

The doodle shows players in blue, red and the umpires in white which resemble ‘pawns’ in chess.

The image — a side view of the stadium also shows spectators cheering their team — has a huge Google logo at the top. A click on the logo will direct a user to the schedule of the event.

In the tournament opener — starting with the opening match of the qualifiers — Zimbabwe will take on Hong Kong and later on Tuesday Scotland will lock horns with Afghanistan in Nagpur.
