Google celebrates India’s love for cricket; launches new ad campaign

MUMBAI With the excitement around the ongoing ICC T20 World Cup, Google unveiled its latest advertising campaign of two ad films highlighting a range of cricket ‘search’ features on its Google app. Conceptualized by Lowe Lintas Delhi, the new campaign helps communicate that cricket lovers can easily get answers to any questions about cricket ranging from score updates to schedules, from cricket gear to trivia through the Google App.

The new search features include score updates to match schedules in English and Hindi and offer a virtual front row seat to all the games. The new search experience also includes news articles related to games, teams and players, as well as score boxes with in-depth game stats.

Commenting on the new campaign, Google India head of marketing Sapna Chadh said, “Being away from the action can be frustrating, but from today you’ll never have to miss another moment with the launch of new cricket experiences on the Google app.”

Sharing his views on the creative approach behind the campaign, Lowe Lintas chief creative officer Arun Iyer said, “Die-hard fans of cricket will stop at nothing to get the updates on scores or any information related to cricket. This element has been captured beautifully through the two films that goes on to show that no matter what, you cannot take cricket out of a fan, and it’s only through relevant and timely information that you can go one-up with them.”

Adding to this, Lowe Lintas president Naveen Gaur added, “Cricket is the biggest passion of this country where every Indian is a bigger cricket lover than the next one. And as one of the leader brands creating a digital world, it’s only natural that Google becomes the most preferred platform for any cricket related queries”.
