    Took the time to read the little article on the left this time as well. I feel enlightened.

    Oh no, it was Jono with that Kohli picture, the man-love was palpable around that post, permeated, IMHO.

    I think we can all agree that Jono is to blame for most things, except those which may perceived as good

    Apparently KP has apologised to the ECB.

    I see Broad has come out and denied any involvement with the parody tweets. The thing that strikes me about it is that four of KP's team-mates followed an account that was ribbing him. In any workplace, he'd have a strong argument that it's stepping into the bullying realm, in this day and age.

    None of this excuses any of his other behaviour but I don't think he's the only one coming out of this badly and those who were following the account have a case to answer, IMO.

    It's a complete shambles this whole thing, honestly. We'll see what happens over this apology anyway.

    Edit - I may have misunderstood actually. Did England players follow the parody account or just the actual user who was behind the parody?

    I see Strauss has said that a big issue is KP 'airing dirty laundry in public' and the it's a core value of the team that what happens in the dressing room stays in the dressing room - and that the issue is about needing to have mutual respect and trust.

    I think some of them followed it, but just towards the end, and KP was too and re-tweeted it, which seems the ideal way to get everyone following it. Anyway I feel a bit sorry for the bloke now, was obviously just meant to be a joke and now he's copping abuse from all over the place with Piers Morgan on his back and apparently KP's brother getting a bit OTT at him too.

    From what they're saying, it's actually some of the Notts county players that the guy knows well - hardly KP's biggest fans.

But if KP's been stupid enough to give them all the ammo they need to disrupt the England camp ahead of a crucial test in which they'll be seeking to exploit every advantage they can, you could argue they'd have been foolish not to.

    Conversely, on the other hand. If, as Grecian said, they were genuinely worried about being hauled up on a corruption charge then I don't think you can really blame them for fessing up.
    I think the former scenario is an awful lot more likely, myself. Were there genuine concerns about being dragged into a fixing imbroglio there are better ways and means to exonerate oneself than leaking the offending messages to friendly journos.

    Unless I'm missing some fact somewhere that the Saffers definitely released it. For all we know the SA Management could of gone to the ECB, ICC and match officials and informed them that KP texted them. With our past history of match fixing I don't blame them for doing that either.
    That anyone on the England side would release anything so obviously injurious to their own prospects stretches credulity way beyond breaking point and, as one understands, as the texts were of the "Strauss smells of cat wee and Dale can have him in a fight LOL" variety one struggles to see how they could be perceived as even vaguely pertaining to match-fixing.

    The report I read said the fella actually lives with a couple of Notts players, so is probably privy to a lot of insider gossip.

    So apparently an apology has been received by the ECB from KPs agents.

    What happened with KP and Notts? I can't say I've ever heard the story.
