With the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 kicking off (yes wrong sport, I know) with Bangladesh vs. India today, Google have found it appropriate to Doodle in celebration of the event’s opening day.

Cricket Fever 2011

While not anywhere near as colourful or innovative as previous Doodles, I can’t think of one that’d be more apt for our cricket-mad country. Not when we’re co-hosting the event anyway. This follows the Jules Verne, Thomas Edison and Valentine’s Day doodles, and is probably the only one that is India exclusive. Not even the co-hosts Sri Lanka and Bangladesh have the Doodle on their versions of Google, which instead have a different Doodle celebrating Constantin Brancusi’s 135th birthday.

On a slightly related note, who are you rooting for?
