Pietersen apologises for text messages

England's star batsman, Kevin Pietersen, has apologised for sending what he called "provocative" text messages to members of the South African team.

He's admitted they contained remarks about his own team mates, including captain Andrew Strauss.

Pietersen's been dropped from the England team for the crucial third and final Test match which starts on Thursday.
