Google Doodle celebrates the ICC Champions Trophy in an innovative manner

It’s the time to mark the beginning of anticipated ICC Champions Trophy today and so, Google decided to celebrate the day with one of its most innovative doodle ever. And it’s addictive as well! The internet giant has always been popular for its creative and fun-loaded Google Doodle, but this time the artwork has actually transformed itself into a cricket game. Before rushing out to play, here are few things you would like to know. 

Instead of redirecting you to a Wikipedia page or an informative piece, Google celebrates ICC Champions Trophy with an interactive virtual cricket on your screens. The batsman, as you can see, is a ‘cricket’ (Plus one for the intended pun here!) and the fielders are snails. Even if you’re having the slowest of networks, Google promises that the game will work.
