The digital pitch is set, the teams and its players are all in battle mode. So it’s a good time to see who the stars of the digital field are, as we enter the second phase of the Indian Premier League (IPL 7).

And we’re doing just that with The Digital Hawk-Eye!

This new series of reports will cover the following points:

The overall conversations for IPL 2014:

  • The demographics, states, and countries talking about the league
  • The brands that are most talked about online, during the league
  • Star players from each team and the volume of online conversations around them
  • The most mentioned team hashtags
  • Volume of conversations by the fans of each team
  • Each team’s social ranking based on their social media score

Here are some interesting statistics from the report:

  • After India, it was Pakistan (with 29.25% of the total conversations from outside India) that saw the maximum conversations about IPL 7
  • Pepsi dominated the battle of conversations among brands, grabbing a whopping 91.8% of the total conversations. Hopefully their digital marketing company is reading this! 😀
