Google said that out of all the cricketers people have looked for in the past 25 years, Virat Kohli is the one they searched for the most.
Virat Kohli is the Most Searched Cricketer in Google’s history.
Everyone knows Virat Kohli in the cricket world. Google recently shared a list of the most searched things in its 25-year history, and when it came to cricketers, Virat Kohli was at the very top. Over the years, Google has seen searches for great players like Sachin Tendulkar, MS Dhoni, Rohit Sharma, and more. However, Virat Kohli stood out as the cricketer that people searched for the most in Google’s entire history.
Although Virat Kohli was the most searched cricketer, he didn’t hold the top spot as the most searched athlete. That title went to Cristiano Ronaldo, a legendary footballer who has played for Real Madrid and Manchester United. Ronaldo, now 38 years old, is still making waves while playing for the Saudi Arabian club Al-Nassr.
Ronaldo has achieved victory over some of the biggest names in football, including his longtime rival Lionel Messi. These two players are widely considered the best in their generation, ruling the sport for approximately 15 years.
What’s intriguing is that Virat Kohli is a bigger fan of Cristiano Ronaldo than Lionel Messi. In several interviews, the Indian cricket star has openly shared his admiration for the Portuguese footballer.
Kohli expressed on Instagram, “No trophy or title can diminish the impact of what you’ve achieved in this sport and for sports fans worldwide.”
Kohli wrote on Instagram after Ronaldo’s team was eliminated from the FIFA World Cup 2022, “No trophy or title can diminish what you’ve achieved in this sport and for sports fans worldwide.”
“No award can capture the influence you’ve had on people and the emotions felt by me and many worldwide as we watch you play. It’s a divine gift, a true blessing for a man who gives his all every time, showcasing hard work, dedication, and serving as a genuine inspiration for any athlete.”
Football secured the top spot as the “most searched sport.”
