CSK skipper MS Dhoni and Kings XI Punjab’s player Glenn Maxwell have been the most searched ‘Man of the Match’ players in this season’s IPL. Chennai Super Kings was also the most searched team besides KKR, Mumbai Indians and Kings XI Punjab. The 4 sides have also qualified for the IPL play-offs.
This season’s Google Search Trend analysis disclosed that besides MS Dhoni and Maxwell, the other most searched cricketers were Yuvraj Singh, AB De Villiers, Gautam Gambhir, Rohit Sharma, Dale Steyn, Robin Uthappa, Ravinder Jadeja and Yusuf Pathan. MS Dhoni was awarded Man of the Match for his winning knock against Royal Challengers in Bangalore, May 24. He remained not out and barely missed out on making a half century hitting 49 runs off 25 balls.
MS Dhoni’s search graphs saw an outstanding rise early on when he hit a 6 and a 4 in the last over bowled by Kieron Pollard to guide Chennai Super Kings to a fabulous triumph over Mumbai Indians after they required 11 in the last over.
