As for the other guys, it seems to be taken for granted in one or two pieces I've read that Swann, Broad and Anderson were involved in the fake Twitter account. If so, a bit of honesty when it all blew up would have been healthy, even if accompanied by telling KP to get over it.
And as has been said elsewhere, if KP's texts to his SA chums didn't actually contain anything derogotary or tactical, then what was the problem?
This isn't going to end well, is it. Or at least, it probably isn't going to last long.
Don't see how. Swann and Anderson had never met the Bailsthebadger, who started the parody account, and never tweeted him. Broad, Prior and Bresnan are still following him under his Bailsthebadger account. Anderson didn't follow the parody account anyway. Whether they all laughed at it is another matter but after Prior had his talk with KP he said it was all cleared up and he was looking forward to getting back to the dressing room. At that time we never knew why KP found it difficult being him in the dressing room.
Then the texts came to light and KP needed to use the parody account as a reason why he texted the South Africans.
