Why Social Media Ranking for Cricketers?

In today’s digitally connected world, when fans want to stay connected with their favorite cricketers both on and off the field, the cricketers are responding by using various social media channels to engage with their fans.

These rankings are an effort to appreciate the most followed cricketers and the bond they have with their fans by trying to look at it through some numbers and try to understand how some cricketers are using their game to build millions of unknown relationships.

We prepare the overall ranking of top cricket players every month and the top 25 cricketers are displayed on this page. We also try to find the trending superstars by classifying the top-10 list of players who have added maximum followers every month.

You can click on the names of the top cricketers, to visit their detailed profile pages where you can find their brief cricketing profiles, the statistics about their social media followers, and participate in interesting polls about your favorite players.

About the Top Cricket Players Ranking

  • This ranking of the top cricket players includes the assessment of the social media performance of more than 650 active cricketers from around the world.
  • These cricketers include those who are currently playing international cricket for Australia, Bangladesh, England, India, New Zealand, Pakistan, South Africa, Sri Lanka, and West Indies; or are playing for any franchise in the Indian Premier League (IPL), Big Bash League (BBL), Caribbean Premier League (CPL), Pakistan Super League (PSL), or the Hundred tournament.
  • New players who debut for the above teams are automatically included in our assessment.
  • The social media channels from which followers are counted are Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube.
  • The ranking is based on the total number of followers on social media for each player. This total number is the sum of followers that each player has on all the social media platforms mentioned above. This total number does not indicate unique followers as some followers would have followed a particular player on multiple platforms.
  • The follower count of top-100 players is updated once every month, out of which the top-25 ranking is prepared. The follower count of all cricketers is updated once every three months.
  • While our team has diligently tried to capture the most pertinent social media accounts of each player (excluding any fan accounts) on a best effort basis, there might be errors in capturing account information or follower count. Please read the disclaimer for more details on this.
