India’s first specialized media consulting firm Ormax Media has shared the list of 10 most popular sportspersons in India. The list is interesting as well as quite surprising as it consists of 5 Indian male cricketers, one tennis player, one badminton player, and three foreign sportspersons.
The top place is not that surprising as it is occupied by the former captain of the Indian cricket team MS Dhoni. He is very popular and one of the most loved captains of the Indian team. While Virat Kohli takes the second place, the God of Cricket Sachin Tendulkar stands on the third place. Rohit Sharma is the fourth most popular sportsperson in India.
Badminton player Sania Nehwal stands on the 6th place while Tennis star Sania Mirza has obtained the eighth place. And standing on 10, Hardik Pandya has also made it to the list.
Among foreign players, Lionel Messi is on 5th, Cristiano Ronaldo on 7th and Roger Federer on 9th place.
