The antics of the Fake IPL Player

Monday, April 27th, 2009

Kolkata Knight Riders have begun the IPL Season II on a rather tumultuous note, firstly having sacked Sourav Ganguly as captain and most recently having packed several players back home.

To add to its miseries, a blogger who goes by the name of “Fake IPL Player” claims to provide the inside scoop on KKR. The public are enjoying every bit of the scoop and are begging for more.

The blogger who is yet to be identified has 3382 followers at present and his posts have comments running into thousands! His blog posts have quite an appealing nature to all gossip lovers.

The revelations in the blogs prove that he is a member of the team or at least someone having close relationship with the team. There have been no leads so far on who this mysterious blogger is.

Until he is nabbed and debarred from exposing the team further, the cricket crazy, gossip loving fans will have a gala time at the expense of KKR.

There is no doubt as to who the real beneficiary is amidst all this furore. All the publicity – good or bad is doing very good for the IPL!  Lalit Modi & Co. would certainly not mind the fake IPL player continue blogging till the end of IPL 2009.

Will John Buchanan’s Multi-Captaincy Theory Make a Difference?

Monday, April 20th, 2009

There has been quite a bit of furor over veteran Australian coach, John Buchanan’s proposal to introduce multiple captains in Twenty20, where there would be a nominating captain, a bowling captain, a fielding captain and a coach who would be captain when the team is batting.

Buchanan who has eight years of experience as Australia’s coach, firmly believes that this novel concept would be advantageous in the fast-moving shortest version of the game. Buchanan is coach for the Kolkata Knight Riders in the IPL second season.

Indian cricket fans are quite skeptical about this new theory as there has never been more than one skipper in a match in any form of the game before. While ex-captain Sunil Gavaskar has expressed resentment over this new development, former India skipper Sourav Ganguly is upset that he was not informed about this earlier.

Former Australian pace bowler Glenn Mc Grath and former Australian medium pacer Damien Flemming were totally against this new concept, both favoring the traditional system of a single captain for the team.

The only person who seems to support Buchanan’s theory is Kolkata Knight Rider’s owner and film actor Shah Rukh Khan, who feels there is nothing wrong in trying out a different concept especially since single captaincy did not win his team laurels in the last IPL.

With the air now taut with tension, it’s going to be interesting to watch how the Knight Riders perform this season.
