Strauss is stumped

London: Broadcasting company Sky issued an apology after a derogatory comment by Andrew Strauss about Kevin Pietersen was picked up when the commentator thought he was off the air.

Strauss was heard by viewers in Australia calling Pietersen the ‘c-word’ during MCC’s bicentenary match against the Rest of the World at Lord’s.

He was understood to be sitting at the back of the commentary box, and talking with his fellow commentator Nick Knight, when he made the comment about Pietersen after an over and during a break.
