On the occasion of ICC World Twenty20 tournament, Google has launched two two new experimental features in Search to make keeping up with all the cricket news easier — fresh content directly from your favorite cricket players, personalities and commentators, and a new live sports commentary panel. These new Search features are experimental and running only during the ICC World T20 2016.
During the ICC World T20, people will now be able to hear from your favorite cricketers more easily. Now if you search for Ravindra Jadeja, in addition to the news articles, tweets and links you’re used to seeing in Google Search, you’ll also see posts, match photos, or videos directly from him. Similarly you can read read Captain Cool MS Dhoni’s latest match reflections and see what Virat Kohli’s been up to on and off the pitch?
As well as bringing you closer to your favorite cricket stars, Google is also making it easier for you to find commentary from a wide range of players, commentators and experts right from Search. Now, when you search for cricket and ICC World Twenty20 related queries like “T20” or team names during and after matches, you’ll see real-time commentary on the match from a range of cricket stars. That way you can catch Akash Chopra’s most recent quip or Boria Majumdar’s anecdotes on cricketing history. These commentary panels will launch just in time for today’s highly anticipated India vs New Zealand match and will be available for the ICC T20 games listed below.
