Sky Sports commentator Strauss, believing he was off the air in a break in play during the Lord’s bicentenary match between MCC and the Rest of the World, reportedly used a particularly obscene epithet to describe Pietersen. But although Strauss’s remarks weren’t heard by Sky viewers, they were picked up on an overseas app receiving a continuous feed of the Sky commentary.

A brief statement issued by Sky said: “Earlier comments were made during a break in play which were heard overseas. We apologise for the language used.”
