Former England Fast bowler and BBC cricket correspondent Jonathan Agnew has decided to leave popular social media networking site Twitter over a Kevin Pietersen row which led to an argument with the star cricketer’s wife.

Agnew, 54, got into an argument with former England crickter’s wife and Liberty X member Jessica Taylor on the Twitter, which lead to a barrage of abuse on social media site. Consequently, BBC’s star analyst and The TMS (Test Match Special) pundit deleted his Twitter account.

Aggers, before leaving micro-blogging in his last tweet, wrote: ‘Almost did this last night. This is not what Twitter was when I joined. I will now leave it to the bullies and trolls. Shame.’

TMS Pundit earlier spoke on Test Match Special on Tuesday night about latest Pietersen saga and his recent behaviour and the fallout with establishment on the eve his controversial book release, while the South African-born player was listening to it from a BBC studio.

Aggers lashed out at Pietersen alleging that the 34-year-old pretends to be a strong, confident individual, while in fact, he was an ‘anxious, nervous individual.’

He also gave his views on the now infamous parody Twitter account @KPGenius, which as alleged by former England wicket-keeper Alec Stewart, was run by England players like Broad, Swann etc.

After the show, Agnew and Taylor were involved in a heated exchange on Twitter about whether the account was indeed run by Pietersen’s team-mates.

Taylor said: ‘I’m not fighting anyone’s battles. As a wife and mother I have every right to defend my family when I see fit. I make no apologies for that.’
