Catch up on the Cricket World Cup with a little help from Google
For all the fans looking to catch the action and understand the ins and outs of the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup, Google Search, the Assistant, and YouTube have you covered.
Stay in the know with Google Search
Over the next six weeks, you can explore the tournament table, stats and upcoming matches right in Google Search. Just search for “ICC Cricket World Cup” in English, Hindi, Bengali, Marathi, Tamil, Telugu, or Urdu to get started.
If you want to get in on the action before the opening toss, you can search for your favorite team—for instance “India cricket team”—to read up on the latest news, view squads, lineups, and even dive into winning probabilities, which will continuously update before and during the game.
If you can’t watch a live match, Search can help you stay on top of the game. You can view short video clips highlighting exciting moments and read through live commentary in English and Hindi. If you’re following a team or all matches in the World Cup, you’ll also see game notifications appear on your home screen to make sure you don’t drop the ball.
To keep track of all the matches, you 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, tap and drag to pin the match anywhere on your screen.
After each match, you can dive into summaries including player of the match, top performers and key moments. Within an hour after a game ends, you’ll find video recaps from select broadcasting partners featuring highlights of major match moments.
On the front foot with your Google Assistant
To make sure you never miss a game, try asking your Assistant, “Hey Google, when does Australia play next?” And while you’re watching your favorite team hit another six or rip through the opposing top order, you can ask your Assistant for interesting stats about your favorite player or team -- like how many career runs a player has, or how many centuries they have scored. You can even get up-to-date stats by asking, "Hey Google, what are the current Cricket standings?" This also works in Google Search.
