The 2011 Cricket World Cup begins today in Bangladesh, where India faces off against Bangladesh in Mirpur, Dhaka. In celebration of the first match in the Cricket World Cup, Google today posted a special cricket Doodle on Google India, with a cricket field backdrop, a batsman in the middle of the doodle, taking the place of the lower-case G:
Opening ceremonies took place Feb. 17. The Cricket World Cup is being hosted by three nations: India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. It will feature 14 teams, with the final contest scheduled for April 2 in Mumbai.
Interestingly enough, Google Sri Lanka and Google Bangladesh are not sporting the Cricket Doodle today. Instead they join the rest of the Google world, celebrating the 135th birthday of Constantin Brancusi.
