Mumbai: Ben Stokes trounced American singer Taylor Swift to become a more popular Wikipedia search for a brief period during his blockbuster Headingley Test knock.

The International Cricket Council (ICC), re-posted the data on their official Instagram account and said, "For a brief moment last weekend, Ben Stokes was a more popular Wiki search than Taylor Swift".
