Well, as the whole world is anxiously waiting to see the most thrilling encounter in the ongoing World Cup – to be played between India and Pakistan tomorrow – a very encouraging story is running on social media. According to the story, defending champions India generated maximum search interest across participating nations in the world cup. It is heartening to note that popular Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has been the most sought after captain, according to data generated by Google search.

It has been pointed out that the Global search trends data discloses the Team India being the top popular team in this year’s World Cup. India is being closely followed by Australia, England, Pakistan and the West Indies. So far as the marquee stars are concerned, Virat Kohli, followed by Indian skipper Dhoni remained the most sought after player. These Indian stars are closely followed by Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi.

 However, Australian and English pacers are dominating the top searched bowlers list in the World Cup. The fans have been searching most for Mitchell Johnson (Australia), followed by James Anderson (England), Mitchell Starc (Australia), Stuart Broad (England) and Mohammed Shami (India).

No bowler from South Africa, West Indies or New Zealand appears in this list of the top bowlers. In the stream of the all-rounders, fans are searching most for Stuart Binny (India), followed by Shakib Al Hasan (Bangladesh), Steve Smith (Australia), Ravindra Jadeja (India) and Shane Watson (Australia).

 Among the category of the wicket keepers, top searched favourites again happen to be Mahendra Singh Dhoni (India), followed by Kumar Sangakkara (Sri Lanka), Quinton de Kock (South African), Luke Ronchi (New Zealand), and Brad Haddin (Australian).
