Fake IPL player or journalist?

The more you read the blogs of the fake IPL player of Kolkata Knight Riders again and again, one is pretty convinced it is the handiwork of a journalist.
The flair of writing, the poetry on Bunty and Babli plus someone who is familiar with the cricketing world and well versed to employ various styles to keep everyone interested – all attributes together make the list of suspects down to the tribe of the pen men for one.
Knowledge of off-field activities of the protagonists is something which any journalist worth his salt knows but can’t publish and always talks in hush-hush tones.
If one were to write a ‘fiction story based on true facts’, guessing how the team meeting of KKR will go with Ganguly’s mood or what would Buchanan say to a dropped player can still get an authentic feel without saying anything.
The fact that the “mole” happens to be from the KKR team with potential for loads of masala cannot be a mere coincidence.
