Ex-England batsman Kevin Pietersen's autobiography is on-sale today, and over the course of the week, national newspapers have been releasing various extracts from within it, which has already caused much controversy and debate amongst many.
One of the major talking points is the 'bullying culture' that went on in the England dressing room and on the field, with South African-born Pietersen claiming a parody Twitter account with the username '@KPGenius' left him 'ruined' and totally ostracised in the dressing room, making him cry in front of head coach Andy Flower.
Stewart wades in
A lot of controversy has arisen from this, with the 34-year-old stating he was informed by England's most-capped Test star, Alec Stewart, that a number of KP's international team-mates were behind it, after speaking to a club cricketer from Nottingham called Richard Bailey, who is allegedly the author.
Bailey, a friend of Stuart Broad and Alex Hales, denies that any member of the England team took part.
But Pietersen is adamant that bowling trio Broad, James Anderson and Graeme Swann were the ring-leaders. He tweeted last night: "Why did he [Bailey] tell @StewieCricket that @Swannyg66, @jimmy9 & @StuartBroad8 had the Acc on their phones & tweeted from it?!"
The three named players strenuously deny any involvement with the account but Stewart's allegation has stirred the pot and he has now sucked himself into the book storm by reporting three players to England cricket chiefs.
He informed bosses that Anderson had no involvement but Swann, Broad and Tim Bresnan were actively involved.
Bresnan brought to light
However, England all-rounder Bresnan has taken to his own social-media page to defend the claims, tweeting: "Disappointed to be implicated in the #kpgenius account. I 100% did NOT have any password. And wasn't involved in any posting."
It seems the storm rumbles on, with more players being accused of involvement in the twitter account and behind-the-scenes 'bullying'.
Alec Stewart has certainly given KP and the rest of the nation more to think about. Will we ever discover the real truth behind the various different comments coming from both camps?
