I tried so very hard not to post this. I almost feel stupid doing it, but I felt I just had to get this out there.
At the moment, I am 80% convinced this person is not a player at all, and probably not support staff either. Maybe a journo, because they went out of their way to come up with a way to indirectly negate this option, and we all know they're quite clever.
But lately they seem to have gotten more lax in preserving their identity, in general. Some of the details in their last posts seem odd and consistency is becoming a little more see-through. The places they frequent and that fact that they seem to have some prior knowledge of the cricket blogging circles, or at least the good people at BCC!.
And the ads. You have to provide details for that kind of stuff. If you were a player, perhaps you'd be a little more paranoid about something like that, especially when you're posting about how big a deal this is to management. It just doesn't seem like something you'd do. If you did, you'd have to have the biggest balls in the entire Indian cricket team. And well, I suppose that wouldn't be altogether too difficult, but let's not get into that kind of stuff here.
Of course, this is all assuming there's a player behind this. Which I doubt.
So again, I can't even believe I'm posting this. I'll try to stop, but it's too much of a curiosity for me to stay away from it. In the meantime, I suppose enjoying the hilarious posts is enough.
Why have the England players gone to Dubai?
