Google OneBox “Get cricket scores”

Google doesn’t have many sports-related features. The small OneBoxes are the perfect place for displaying live scores or information about teams and players, like you see in Live Search.

Google has announced the launch of a special feature for the Twenty20 World Championship of cricket:

To make it easier for you to indulge your interest in a game John Fowles characterized as “chess made flesh,” we’ve simplified your search for cricket scores. 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.

In true Google spirit, the OneBox links to three sources of information, some of the best sites about cricket, but it’s interesting to see that the links contain oi=prbx, the same value used for the Bourne Ultimatum promotion. “Prbx” probably means “promotion box” and that doesn’t look very good for Google.
