With the ICC World Twenty20 now in full swing, Google has launched two two new experimental features in Search to make keeping up with all the cricket news easier â fresh content directly from your favorite cricket players, personalities and commentators, and a new live sports commentary panel.
Want to read Captain Cool MS Dhoniâs latest match reflections? Or see what Virat Kohliâs been up to on and off the pitch? 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 youâre used to seeing in Google Search, youâll also see posts, match photos, or videos directly from him.
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 âT20â or team names during and after matches, youâll see real-time commentary on the match from a range of cricket stars. That way you can catch Akash Chopraâs most recent quip or Boria Majumdarâs anecdotes on cricketing history

These commentary panels will launch just in time for todayâs highly anticipated India vs New Zealand match and will be available for the ICC T20 games listed below.
These new Search features are experimental and running only during the ICC World T20 2016. They follow on from the launch of score updates and match schedules in Search last week. We hope youâre enjoying them and making the most of the front row seat to all the games that you have in the palm of your hand.
