India is set to face Australia in a massive second semi-final at the ongoing ICC World Cup 2015. With millions of fans cheering their respective teams, Google too has got into the mood.
Hours before the semi-final kicks off, Google has posted a doodle on its homepage. As has been the theme during the ongoing tournament, the doodle is separated into two with each section depicting a participating team. In this case, the left is marked in blue depicting the flag of Australia, while the right is bathed in India’s tricolors. Unlike the previous doodle before India’s match against Bangladesh, today’s doodle features bowlers. Hovering the mouse over the doodle pops up a message — Australia and India go head-to-head in the semi-finals.
In addition to there being a share button besides the doodle, Google is also joining in on the Indian fans cheering for their team. Calling out the true fans, Google says, “Ordinary fans cheer. True fans paint their face for India: #PaintIndia.” The hastag takes you to Google+ and shows you posts with Indian fans having painted their faces in the colors of the Indian flag.
The India vs Australia semi-finals kicks off at 09:00AM IST tomorrow. You can watch it live on Star Sports or follow the live stream on startsports.com.
