Former England captain Alec Stewart said Wednesday Kevin Pietersen had been right to complain of England players’ Stuart Broad, Graeme Swann and Tim Bresnan’s access to a parody Twitter account mocking the star batsman.

Pietersen, in a heavily-trailed autobiography which is on general sale on Thursday, has written of a “bullying” culture during his time within the England dressing room.

In particular, he did not take kindly to the ‘KPgenius’ Twitter account owned by Richard Bailey, a friend of England paceman Stuart Broad.

Pietersen’s book states Bailey told Stewart he had insider help with the account.

However, Bailey has persistently denied this and on Wednesday he again insisted no England players had been involved, telling the Guardian newspaper: “They 100 per cent did not tweet it.”

But Stewart, South Africa-born Pietersen’s coach at county side Surrey, contradicted Bailey’s denial.
