Google and Vodafone tools for sports fans

Just in time for the Twenty20 World Championship, the official Google blog has announced a new tool which simplifies the search for cricket results:

Just type [cricket]in a Google search box and you’ll see a brief score of all the current cricket matches. A single click will also give you access to a detailed cricket score card.

If you’re a diehard India fan, then type [cricket india]or [cricket score India England]to get results for Indian matches. Of course, feel free to replace India with the country of your choice for country-specific results.
