Yesterday’s Google celebrates the final of the Twenty20 cricket final in India
One of the things that brings the world together is Google and the company’s Doodles celebrate that by using different designs around the world.
Yesterday, the company celebrated the final of the International Cricket Council’s Twenty20 final with bright colours and cricket figurines.
The women’s final was between England and Australia, while the men’s final was between India and Sri Lanka. It marks the fifth men’s Twenty20 tournament and the fourth women’s.
Sri Lanka won the men’s tournament, while Australia thrashed England women by six wickets.
Cricket Twenty20 matches were originally played in England and Wales and when they were introduced, took place between counties rather than countries.
Each team has a single innings, batting for 20 overs and as such, it is much shorter than a full cricket match, lasting only three hours rather than five hours.
The first International Cricket Council (ICC) Twenty20 tournament took place in South Africa in 2007 and India won in the final against Pakistan.
The Google Doodle was on display in Australia, Bangladesh, Denmark, India, Ireland, New Zealand, Sri Lanka and the United Kingdom, where the company believes it has relevance.
