Google Doodle launched a new series in which they encourage people to play at home by sharing immersive throwback games. The most recent one Google posted was their 2017 collaborative doodle celebrating the ICC Champions Trophy.

Because of the government-mandated shutdown to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus, people have been staying at home for more than a month now and are finding ways to kill their time. Google has the best solution for that.

The immersive doodle today shows people playing cricket at home. While the greater G of the word Google is dressed as a person wearing a chef's hat and using a rolling pin instead of a bat, the alphabet E indicates another person ready with the ball.

Clicking on the doodle will take you to a game where you'll be playing cricket on a pitch. This doodle was originally published to celebrate ICC Champions Trophy launch in 2017. This is one of the most interesting games where you get the feeling of being in a stadium and batting.

Google also explained their motive behind launching this 10 game series. They wrote, "As Covid-19 continues to impact communities around the world, people and families everywhere are spending more time at home. In light of this, we're launching a throwback doodle series looking back at some of our popular interactive Google Doodle games!"
