Google released on Wednesday a list of the most popular trends in Pakistan during 2019.

The search engine singled out search terms that had the highest rate of interest by internet users across the country.

The top most searched item was the crucial Pakistan vs South Africa 2019 World Cup fixture, which both had needed to clinch to have any semblance of hope to advance on to the semi-finals. Pakistan made an emphatic comeback that day and sent South Africa crashing out of the tournament.
