Who is the Fake IPL Player?

I'm sure by now you all have made your way down to the Fake IPL Player.

If you haven't then I suggest you get yourself down there right now!

He is covering the IPL better than any of us veteran bloggers, bringing us the inside scoop on the 3 girls Shane Warne took up to his room after the Royals' defeat, the busty female Ravi Shastri scored on, the club that the IPL players hang out in, and more than anything else - the inside scoop on the Kolkata Knight Riders.

Thanks to him I now know how Saurav Ganguly feels after being ditched as captain, what Ishant Sharma thinks of John Buchanan, and who hangs out with who.

This is brilliant stuff!

So then, who is this Fake IPL Player?

He claims that he's a part of the KKR squad and thinks that he won't get even a single game in the IPL.

In his first post, he actually calls himself a no hoper who bats a bit, bowls a bit, and fields like a maniac.

From there, we also know that he's played the Ranji but no international cricket.

In his 3rd post he gives us a first clue about his identity - he mentions that KKR's opening bowler is his statemate.

KKR's opening bowler? Ashok Dinda. Its quite apparent that the Fake IPL Player is from Kolkata - he mentions it in a number of posts.

So who is he?

I'm not too sure but anyone who knows who KKR's 18 are in South Africa, it should be quite easy to figure it out - picking a Kolkatan who speaks good English out of 7 players who did not play the first game should not be difficult.

The media coverage this year is so bad that I don't even know who the 18 are!

Either way, the Fake IPL Player says that he plans to write a book on his IPL experience - I'm sure we'll find out who he is then!

Till then, I say keep bringing it on IPL Anonymous!

    The plot thickens. This is so awesome. Although I think this dude might be smart enough mislead us into thinking he is from the KKKs. Although Jrod makes a good point about the KKKs making a big show about denouncing the blog.

  2. Q said...
     

    I agree with Jrod.. the fact that its got them thinking it means that the guy is speaking some truth..

  3. Q said...
     

    But then again, if he's a member of the KKR contingent then it shud not be hard for the management to identify him...

    I think he's sitting in India and getting his info from someone within KKR..

  4. Anonymous said...
     

    KKRs opening bowler is also Ishant Sharma and his delhi partner is Aakash Chopra !?

  5. Anonymous said...
     

    It is akash chopra obviously, from the writing.

  6. Q said...
     

    I dont think its akash chopra because 1) He tells us more than once that he's grown up in kolkata and 2) I believe that he is not in the XI.

  7. Aakash Chopra said...
     

    Q, Aakash is very much in the 11. If you have read Aakash Chopra's columns , you would agree It is him.

  8. Q said...
     

    Akash Chopra - I know Chopra is in the XI, what I meant is that I believe the fake IPL player when he says that he is not in the XI..

    I.e. I dont think its Akash Chopra because Chopra is in the XI.. Fake IPL player is not a part of the squad for sure, otherwise he wud have been easily caught.

    Plus I read Aakash Chopra's columns on Cricinfo.. it aint him.

  9. cricketanalysisdotcom said...
     

    Dude is Debabrata Das. But of course he's not. Awesome name though.

  10. Q said...
     

    Debrata Das played a few games for KKR last season..

    This is done by a Bong NRI of USA who has inside information of KKR through a player friend. If you see the time of blog posting and the language proficiency you could easily guess it.

  12. XXXXXXXXX 700 Guy said...
     

    I believe the fake player is none other than Aakash Chopra for sure.. I know he has got a witty and humourous style of writing.

    He also appeared on TV on 4th Umpire as an expert analyst.

  13. Vicky said...
     

    its Aakash Chopra...

  14. Q said...
     

    Anonymous - I could believe that its someone in the USA getting info from a team source..

  15. Q said...
     

    The reasons why I don't believe its Akash Chopra:

    1) Fake IPL player has played his cricket in Kolkata
    2) Akash Chopra has played both the KKR matches and i believe Fake IPL player is not even a squad member
    3) Akash Chopra would have been the obvious choice.. so its surely not him.

    THE FAKE IPL Player is/are ---> Sun*y Gav***** & Harsh* Bhog**

    Analysis:

    1- This is not written by one person but two or more person.

    2- This guy knows everything about indian cricket ( dressing room talk, talk between commentator etc.)

    3- The kind of language he use is simply of a class (for example - troika),
    only a commentator or a book writter can use this type of language.

    4- These guys is/are present at multiple location at same time.

    5- This guy known every thing about kolkata/Bangla ranji team (their nick name etc.).
    Definitely the player is faking that he is a ranji player.
    But it seems that the bloggers very close relative is/was a Bangla ranji team player.

    6- This guy hates SRK and has a soft conners towords DADA.

    The reason i think it's aakash chopra is:-
    1. Most of the evidences point towards him
    2. He has mentioned he is not in squad ....so as to hide his identity.....come on guys...he can't jst give it away :)
    3. In KKR only aakash chopra is so articulate...he has even wrote a book called 'Beyond the blues'......as evident from his vocab...he seems to be an avid writer....
    4. Btw in last match Aakash chopra was put out for Sanjay Bangar......
    All dese points towards him.

  20. Q said...
     

    Anonymous - the one with the whoisthefakeiplplayer blog - ur speculative points are worth thinking about.. we're all waiting to solve this mystery..

  21. Q said...

  22. Q said...
     

    Anonymous: it could really be anyone and yes Akash Chopra was dropped in favour of Sanjay Bangar, but is it really him?

    The Fake IPL player is RDB for sevral reasons:
    1. HE mentioned about his bowling skills, yep only RDB
    2. he workships ganguly, he is a bengali from his talks/habit, yep its RDB
    3. He is mid 30's, yep time to retire from cricket, yes its RDB

  26. Gaurav said...

    RDB great job, u have been just throughly entertaining!!!

  27. Q said...
     

    Gaurav: welcome to Well Pitched..

    I also thought it was RDB.. I also did a post on it:

    http://www.wellpitched.com/2009/04/ranadeb-bose-is-fake-ipl-player.html

    But many people who mattered said it wasn't. Most of all Dileep Premachandran, so I think its not RDB.

    I think he is a fake... reasons?? here are some.

    1st post : he says he bought a new macbook. well how many have macbooks in the team and how many have new.

    some post: he says he is posting from the coach's laptop. well be might have been caught by now.

    some other post: he says he walks right into the room when everyone is a suspect and sits besides the coach and skipper. no way he can't be figured out

    there are more clues in the blog that can easily get him caught. and he's still blogging? well hez a fake for sure.

  29. Q said...
