The ICC World Twenty20 is upon us and if you’re a cricket fan, keeping up with all the news just got easier with the addition of two new experimental features in Google Search — fresh content directly from your favorite cricket players, personalities and commentators, and a new live sports commentary panel.
Want to read Captain Cool MS Dhoni's latest match reflections? Or see what Virat Kohli’s been up to on and off the pitch? During the ICC T20, you’ll 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.
