Kevin Pietersen says allegations he shared tactics with England's South African opponents in summer of 2012 were "100% garbage". Pietersen was dropped from the England team for the final Test of the 2012 series after reports he had texted South Africa players advice on how to get England captain Andrew Strauss out. He subsequently underwent a "reintegration" period before his eventual return to the England team. Pietersen said he does regret the affair: "I got Andrew Strauss involved in to a situation he shouldn't have got in to. "I'm really sad our relationship has gone a bit iffy because of that."
