England all-rounder Tim Bresnan has rejected any involvement in the parody Twitter account, which mocked former team-mate Kevin Pietersen.

Pietersen recently released an autobiography. The book includes details of a contentious relationship with former coach Andy Flower and disappointment with the social media satire allegedly frequented by trio Bresnan, Stuart Broad and Graeme Swann.

"Disappointed to be implicated in the 'KP Genius' account. I 100 percent did not have any password. And wasn't involved In any posting," Bresnan wrote on Twitter on Thursday.

Swann and Broad, too, has denied the allegations brought by erstwhile captain Alec Stewart. The account was run by Broad's friend Richard Bailey – and gathered several thousand followers.

"I would like to confirm that I had no involvement in this whatsoever. I met with the managing director, England Cricket, Hugh Morris 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 or the England team," Broad said in a written statement.

"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 parody account down.''
