Cricket T20 World Cup 2014: Google Doodle marks tournament final as India and Sri Lanka battle it out


Google's latest Doodle celebrates the Twenty20 World Cup final that takes place today between India and Sri Lanka in Mirpur.

The six colourful illustrations that replace the letters in the word Google depict cricketers batting, bowling and fielding along with cheering crowd scene, stumps being scattered and a hand tossing a cricket ball.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) held the inaugural limited overs World Cup in 2007 in South Africa with India taking the title. Today they hope to win it for a second time against the Sri Lankans who have never won the tournament, losing in their two previous final appearances.
