Google Doodle (August 18) 2018 Asian Games

A Google Doodle is a special, temporary alteration of the logo on Google’s homepage that commemorates holidays, events, achievements, and people. The first Google Doodle honoured the Burning Man festival in 1998, and was designed by Google founders – Larry Page and Sergey Brin – to notify users of their absence in case the servers crashed. Subsequent Google Doodles were designed by an outside contractor until 2000, when Page and Brin asked public relations officer Dennis Hwang to design a logo for Bastille Day. Since then, a team of employees called Doodlers have organized and published the Doodles.

Initially, Doodles were neither animated nor hyperlinked – they were simply images with hover-text describing the subject or expressing a holiday greeting. Doodles increased in both frequency and complexity by the beginning of the 2010s. In January 2010 the first animated Doodle honoured Sir Isaac Newton. The first interactive Doodle appeared shortly thereafter celebrating Pac-Man, and hyperlinks also began to be added to Doodles, usually linking to a search results page for the subject of the Doodle. By 2014, Google had published over 2,000 regional and international Doodles throughout its homepages, often featuring guest artists, musicians, and personalities.

On August 18, 2018, the Google doodle marked the beginning of the 2018 Asian Games, officially known as the 18th Asian Games, which is a pan-Asian multi-sport event scheduled to be held from August 18 to September 02, 2018 in the Indonesian cities of Jakarta and Palembang, in which 45 nations will be participating.
This would be the first time that the Asian Games would be co-hosted in two cities; the Indonesian capital of Jakarta (which is hosting the Games for the first time since 1962), and Palembang, the capital of the South Sumatra province.

Virat Kohli’s century records

Virat Kohli's century records

Virat Kohli has the fifth-highest number of centuries in international cricket at 57 (fifty-seven) — 22 (twenty-two) in Test cricket and 35 (thirty-five) in One Day Internationals (ODIs). Virat Kohli made his ODI international debut against Sri Lanka in August 2008, and scored his first century the following year when he made 107 against the same team at Eden Gardens, Kolkata. His 86-ball 133 not out against Sri Lanka in February 2012 led India to the second highest run-chase by any team in Australia. Former Australian cricketer Dean Jones described the innings as “one of the greatest ODI knocks of all time”.

Kohli’s highest score of 183 came against Pakistan during the 2012 Asia Cup; India successfully chased a target of 330 set by Pakistan and Kohli was adjudged man of the match. Following that in 2013, he made his 1st century as a captain while playing against the West Indies in a tri-nation tournament. In the bilateral series against Australia in October 2013, Kohli made two centuries in successful run chases. The first of the two, 100 not out, was scored off 52 balls and remains the fastest ODI century by an Indian. The next century, which came off 61 balls, remains the third-fastest by an Indian. Twenty-one of his thirty-five centuries in ODIs have come in the second innings, and India have lost only five ODIs when he made a century. Kohli has the most ODI centuries for an active player and is behind Sachin Tendulkar (forty-nine) in the all-time list.

Kohli made his Test debut against the West Indies in 2011 and scored his 1st century in Tests during the Australian tour in January 2012. In the first Test of the 2014-15 Border-Gavaskar Trophy, he made 115 and 141, and became the fourth Indian player to score centuries in both the innings of a Test match. He was appointed as the captain of the Test team during the series and became the first player to score centuries in each of his first three Test innings as captain. In 2016, Kohli became the fifth player to score three or more double centuries in a calendar year. The following year, he repeated the feat by scoring three double centuries, including a career-best 243 against Sri Lanka. As of April 2018, he has the most double centuries (6) by a captain. Eleven of his twenty-one centuries in the format have been scored at venues outside India. In 2017, he became the first captain to score ten centuries across all formats in a calendar year. Since his debut Twenty20 International match in 2010, Kohli is yet to score a century in the T20i; his highest score in the format is 90 not out against Australia in 2016.
