Will SA finally shed the chokers tag, or will the six time semi-finalists finally cross the hurdle this time!!
With all eyes on which of the two teams would make it to their first World Cup Finals, social media was abuzz with conversations around it. We at Tech Mahindra bring to you, all the analyses of conversations on match day.
The buzz peaked when match resumed post rain interruption, with plenty of enthusiasm around AB de Villiers’s capabilities & Brendon McCullum’s aggressive batting. The second peak was after New Zealand’s stunning victory, with sympathy in abundance for South Africa’s well fought campaign that came to a halt.
Expectations of a repeat blitzkrieg by Martin Guptill, and face-off between New Zealand’s pace battery & AB de Villiers were most talked about.
Twitter continued to be the most preferred channel accounting for 60% impressions during the game.
Sheer love for the game was at display, with Indian cricket fans taking to social media in large numbers for a neutral game. New Zealand, although has a significantly lesser population shows on the buzz trend chart.
@bhogleharsha, @kiranshaw and@rameshsrivats were some of the most influential twitter handles.
Audience demographic confirms to what we saw in earlier games, with youngsters in the 13-30 age group contributing to over 60% of conversations. And undoubtedly, men have only one thing on their mind - “#WeWontGiveItBack”!!
We expect the social media chatter to go up multi folds, when the defending champions take on Australia at SCG on Thursday. Stay tuned for more exciting insights on CWC2015 powered by Socio.
