Google is expanding its experimental feature we named Google Posts to cricket player posts. The Google India blog announced these cricket post cards are now available when you search for cricket player names, personalities and commentators directly in the search results.

For example, if you search for [akash chopra], a former Indian cricketer, who played for the Indian cricket team from late 2003 until late 2004, you will see his card come up in the search results. It works in the US search results, too.

Here is a screen shot:

Or try [virat kohli], and it comes up, as well:


Clicking on one of the posts takes you to a specific landing page at, for example, this one.
