Fake IPL player fails to keep promise

The notorious 'fake IPL player' still keeping cricket fans in suspense even after the end of Kolkata Knight Riders' Indian Premier League campaign.

The controversial blogger, who calls himself a Fake IPL Player, has left everyone guessing by not coming out with the much-awaited disclosure in what is ostensibly his last post.

In a video post youtube, a shadow declares himself to be the fake IPL player.

"This is me the fake IPL player or FIP as you sometimes call me. It's been four weeks, 43 posts and about 70,000 comments till now. Behind all the grease paint, I am just another faceless guy. I grew up in Delhi, where I learnt my art. I have travelled and worked almost all over India," he says.

The blog became an instant hit during the IPL for its hilarious posts on the IPL teams and players. The blogger claimed that he was a player in the Kolkata Knight Riders team who would never get a chance to be in the playing XI.

His posts ridiculing the Knight Riders and the rest of the IPL teams made him immensely popular among citizens and drew sharp reactions from the KKR management with the teams official website calling the blog an example of "poison-pen writing".
