Google Search engine is not working

Description of the issue: I have been using Brave conveniently for about a year and with my Default search engine as Google. Today suddenly, google search has stopped working. I didn’t mess with any settings prior to this happening. When I went to brave://settings/search and to “Normal Window - Search engine used in the address bar”, Google was selected. So I tried changing the search engine to others like DuckDuckGo, Brave, Bing etc and then tried searching. It was all working fine. But then I went back and selected google, it stopped working again. The page loads for a while and then shows, “This site can’t be reached”

Brave Version (check About Brave): Version 1.50.121

Operating System: Windows 11 Pro
