Stuart Broad's denial of any involvement in setting up the fake Kevin Pietersen Twitter account, comes after Broad's friend Richard Bailey's claimed he set up the account.
Mr Bailey says he opened the parody Twitter account - KP Genius - laughing at Pietersen's personality in the third person. The account was later shut down after the England batsman was unhappy that some of his teammates followed it.
Mr Bailey, who says he is from Nottingham and has the Twitter name @Bailsthebadger, has said sorry for any offence he has caused and has said no professional cricketers were party to his exploits.
England Cricket Board Managing Director Hugh Morris said: "Having discussed this matter with Stuart, I am fully satisfied that he acted in a professional manner at all times and did not breach any confidences regarding fellow England player.
"ECB also accepts the apology Mr Bailey offered last night to the England team via his Twitter account and his reassurances that no professional cricketers were involved in the creation of this site."
The English Cricket Board has issued the following statement on behalf of Stuart Broad in relation to the setting up of a fake Twitter account for Kevin Pietersen by a member of the public:

Following last night's statement by Mr Richard Bailey that he was responsible for creating a fake Twitter account in Kevin Pietersen's name, I would like to confirm that I had no involvement in this whatsoever.
I met with the Managing Director - England Cricket, Hugh Morris this morning and assured him that I did not play any role in the creation of this account or provide Mr Bailey with any information regarding Kevin Pietersen or the England team.

As has been widely reported Mr Bailey is a friend of mine, but we had no conversations regarding this issue at all and I am pleased that he has now decided to close the fake account down.

Ignoring Twitter is probably the best policy when you are trying to win an Olympic medal, gymnast Louis Smith from Peterborough advised today.
Smith, who stopped tweeting before his qualification competition, said: "There are just tweets that you do not want to see.
"It is just that one message. You can get a hundred nice ones but there is that one message that you do not want to see - so that is why I took the decision to stop tweeting (before my competition).
"It is not worth the risk - just concentrate on what you need to do and that is to perform at the Olympic Games and not to engage with everyone else."
