Cricketer Mustafizur Rahman has topped the lists of persons searched on Google from Bangladesh in 2015.
He has thereby ended the dominance of film artistes, who so far have been holding the top position on the list.
Cricketers Taskin Ahmed and Mashrafe Bin Mortaza are also among the top ten.
According to Google’s Year in Search report, Mustafizur was followed by former Indian President APJ Abdul Kalam, who died in July this year, and Indian actress Radhika Apte.
Others among the top ten are American actress, fashion model and singer Ariel Winter, American boxer and wrestler Ronda Rousey, young Bangladeshi actor Sayeem Sadat who died at only 27, and Indian actresses Sunny Leone and Karishma Tanna.
Last year Hollywood actress Jennifer Lawrence was at the top of the list of persons searched on Google from Bangladesh. None of last year’s top ten has found a place on this year’s list.
According to the report, the websites containing SSC and HSC exam results and college admission test results were visited the most in 2015, as in the previous year.
Globally the highest number of people searched information on Google about the Nov 14 terrorist attacks in Paris.
