South African management in England brushed off that Kevin Pietersen sent text messages to Dale Steyn and AB de Villiers.


Dr Mohammad Moosajee, team manager of South Africa, clarified that Steyn and de Villiers are not involved in the incident


“I can confirm they did not receive texts, that’s what I have been saying, a lot of what has been written is not correct,” Moosajee was quoted as saying by the Daily Mail.


“There were text messages but it was banter. Some of these guys have got relationships with overseas players from the IPL (Indian Premier League). But some of what has been reported is totally incorrect.”


“We don’t want to get ourselves drawn into it because it’s not our issue at all. It’s very difficult to talk about what is happening in other people’s dressing rooms but at the moment, it’s for them to sort out,” Moosajee concluded.
