England vs South Africa

England vs South Africa

The world's biggest search engine platform has announced on Wednesday 5th June, to keep it up with all the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 action. All thanks to Google Search, the Google Assistant, and YouTube, which are here to bring you everything related to the mega Cricket event in a platter in the next 6 weeks!

As World Cup fever grips the country, Google is trying to play its part to let everyone know that any and all updates, scores, features and more regarding the ongoing tournament can be found on its Google Assistant. One can have an overview and feel of the match by reading the live commentary in English and Hindi.

To keep track of all the matches, you also can pin real-time scores on your Android phone screen from Search on mobile browsers or from the Android Google App. Find the match you're looking for, then tap and drag to pin the match anywhere on your screen.

Star India said the reach of the opening world cup game is 2.2 times of the opening game of the most recently played ICC tournament - the ICC Champions Trophy 2017, between England and Bangladesh. After a match is over, match summaries including player of the match, top performers, key moments and video recaps from select broadcasting partners will be made available to users.

Impeach Trump? No, Pelosi Says Let's Just 'Put Him in Prison'
She has said Trump "is engaged in a cover-up " and that his staff and family should stage an "intervention" with the president.

Users can also get highlights of every match on the official YouTube channel of ICC. It will also allow users to ask interesting stats about a team or player or even get up-to-date stats on rankings.

The network has a slate of non-live programming planned for the duration of the world cup, which it hopes will sustain the excitement over the rather long world cup season.

Google Search will also help you stay up to date with the matches if you are unable to watch them live.
