Google celebrates opening of ICC-2019 World Cup with an animated doodle
The internet search engine and technology giant Google celebrates the International Cricket Council's (ICC) 2019 World Cup, which opens at the Oval in London, with an animated doodle.

In the doodle, the first O has been replaced with an animated ball and letter L has been replaced by the stumps and bails.

Wishing the participating teams 'May the best team win!' the doodle blog describes the big win as "Over 100 players, 10 teams, but only one cup."

"Taking place every four years, the Cricket World Cup is the world's leading contest in one-day cricket, and has become one of the most popular sporting events on the planet. Ten teams earn their chance to compete for the cup through a qualifying process that takes five to six years. This year's round robin will be hosted in England and Wales," informs Google's website adding that 'no matter how heated the competition may get, cricket is highly respected for maintaining high standards of fair play and good sportsmanship.' 

"The world's first international cricket match, between Canada and the United States, took place in 1844. The first World Cup tournament was held in 1975, won by the West Indies team, who repeated the feat in 1979. This year's defending champions are Australia, a perennial powerhouse that has won five of the eleven cups," it adds.
