Most searched IPL player is Sachin

Cricket ruled over the country's cyberspace in 2010 with Sachin emerging as the most popular cricketer and Hyderabad as the most popular IPL team, according to a Google India survey.

The new survey -- The Google 'Zeitgeist'(Spirit of the times) 2010 -- based on Google India search queries, which reflect what Indians were searching during the year.

It also announced it second IPL Zeitgeist for 2010 - an insight into the most searched teams and players during the third season of the Indian Premier League.

Conspicuous by their absence were popular names such as MS Dhoni, Virender Sehwag and 'the Fake IPL Player', who moved off the top 10 this year. Adam Gilchrist, Ryan Harris and Praveen Kumar made their debut on the list at number 7, 8 and 9 respectively.

Australian spinner Shane Warne held the top position in popular international player category for the second year in a row, the survey, which was released today, said.

The results, based on study of aggregation of billions of queries people typed into Google search in 2010 showed that Tendulkar moved to the first position from last year's second spot and Hyderabad jumped to the top spot from the third place in 2009.
