Along with posting photographs on social media, Pichai stated that he spoke with Amol Rajan of the BBC about a variety of topics, including quantum computing and stability. “Amol is to be praised for bringing the bat with him. Cricket has always been one of my favorite sports,” said Pichai. He was also lauded by fans for taking time out of his hectic schedule to play cricket.
