CSA, ECB clear the air over KP saga



CSA and ECB have discussed the events which led to Kevin Pietersen’s non-selection for the third test.

Cricket South Africa has made clear to ECB that the electronic messages were not part of any initiative or plan to undermine the England team or players. ECB has unreservedly accepted that assurance and wishes to reiterate that it has no issue at all with CSA - or the Proteas players - on this matter and appreciates that the South African and England players follow the highest ethical standards of behaviour.

Although the two Boards do not agree on the sequence of events regarding any responses to messages between Kevin Pietersen and certain Proteas players, CSA and SACA accept Mr Collier’s apology based upon his earlier utterances that the team may have acted in a way which was underhand.

Both CSA and ECB regard this matter as now closed and will not comment on the confidential information shared in discussion between the Boards.
