Dhoni’s search graphs saw an incredible rise early on when he hit a six and a four in the last over bowled by Kieron Pollard to guide Chennai Super Kings to a sensational win over Mumbai Indians after they needed 11 in the final over.

Yuvraj ruled the search charts during the election results week as he slammed an unbeaten 68 off 29 balls cracking nine sixes against Delhi Daredevils. Royal Challengers Bangalore won the match by 16 runs.
