UC Browser Traffic Report: Cricket-related Content Consumption Sees 230% Hike in 2017

With cricket match series against Sri Lanka is going on, UC Browser saw a great hike in the number of traffic. Cricket related contents saw over 200% hike compared to the previous month. The traffic was mainly boosted by the ongoing cricket series and the previous serious against the Australians and New Zealanders also remain the major cause for this hike.

Among the cricketers, the Indian Cricket Team captain ViratKohli remains the most searched name. As always, Kohli has had huge fans across the globe for his outstanding knocks. But this time, his name seemed to be searched along with the term ‘ViratKohli Wedding.’ The Indian Captain recently married his love heart Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma.

Interestingly, a special term ‘Virushka’ was also widely searched on UC Browser and UC Mini Browser. Virushka was a special term referring to Virat – Anushka pair.

There was a surge in the search for Rohit Sharma after he made history by hitting the third double ton in one day internationals (ODIs). He remains the lone man to achieve this rare feet. It has to be mentioned that so far there has only been seven ODI double tons. Rohit also holds the record for maximum runs in an ODI. The highest score of 264 too came from his bat against the Sri Lankans three years back in 2014.

Rohit Sharma has scored three double tons in ODI while all others put together has scored only four of them. Sachin Tendulkar was the first to achieve this feat of 200 runs in ODI history and later punch hitter VirenderSehwag improved the record by hitting 219 against the West Indies. Two years later, Rohit Sharma made his first double ton but failed to par the highest ODI score in his first attempt but he registered the feat in his name in his next attempt.

West Indies opener power-hitter Chris Gayle made 215 and Martin Guptill of New Zealand made another double ton. Apart from these four players, no one else has crossed the feat of 200 runs feat. This kind of performances is likely to boost the traffic on UC Browser in future as well.
