Sir Allen Stanford apologised on Monday October 27 to Kevin Pietersen after he was caught on television flirting with the wives and girlfriends of the England players.
By Nick Hoult--The Telegraph.
Stanford was seen to grab and put Emma Prior, the wife of wicketkeeper Matt, on his lap before putting his arm around Alastair Cook's girlfriend during England's match against Middlesex on Sunday evening.
The incident was captured on television by the cameraman who tracks Sir Allen's every move. It seemed a good natured incident at the time and the players wives smiled and went along with the fun. But it seems the incident caused embarrassment and made them feel uncomfortable. One unnamed England player said last night: If that was my wife and he put her in his lap I would have wanted to punch him.
Stuart Broad, the England bowler, said: There were a few gobsmacked faces. I did not see it because I was bowling at the time but I think Matt Prior had a look of shock on his face.
Stanford moved quickly on Monday to restore good relations with the players, apologising to Prior and Pietersen for his behaviour.
Stanford kept a noticeably lower profile and was rarely featured on television during the match between Middlesex and Trinidad.

Three people have been arrested by Customs officials in connection with our match-fixing investigation into the Pakistan cricket team.
Two men and a woman, all from London, were questioned yesterday as part of the probe into money laundering, HM Revenue and Customs said. They have been released on bail.
HM Revenue and Customs said in a statement: "Three individuals were arrested on Sunday as part of an ongoing investigation into money laundering.
"This includes two 35-year-olds - a male and a female - from the Croydon area, and a 49-year-old male from the Wembley area.
"These individuals were arrested, questioned and have been bailed pending further investigation."
The development came as it was announced that three Pakistan cricketers will meet officials from their country in London tomorrow.
Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Ijaz Butt and the country's high commissioner will talk to Test captain Salman Butt and bowlers Mohammad Aamer and Mohammad Asif, their team manager announced today.
Yawar Saeed said the three players would be expected to return to the squad after the meeting.
We named the trio - along with wicketkeeper Kamran Akmal - in connection with a plot to deliberately bowl no-balls to order in the recently-concluded fourth Test at Lord's.
Our reporters posed as Far Eastern businessmen paying a middleman £150,000 to arrange the deal.
The cricketers were later questioned by Scotland Yard officers at their London hotel and Butt, Asif and Aamer had their mobile phones confiscated.
Mazhar Majeed, a cricket agent who also owns Croydon Athletic Football Club, was arrested, then released on police bail.
It is expected the four players will be asked to withdraw from the forthcoming Twenty20 internationals and one-day internationals, which begin on Sunday in Cardiff.
Last night Mr Butt stressed the allegations had not been proved and there were no immediate plans to suspend players.
The PCB, London's High Commission for Pakistan and the country's sports ministry in Islamabad were holding a conference call today to discuss the best way forward.
Haroon Lorgat, of the sport's ruling body the International Cricket Council (ICC), said he hoped there would be "some sort of a conclusion" to the investigation by the weekend.
The ICC's anti-corruption and security unit (ACSU) is also investigating the claims and Mr Lorgat said "prompt and decisive action" would be taken against anyone who sought to harm the game's integrity.
"Make no mistake, once the process is complete, if any players are found to be guilty, the ICC will ensure that the appropriate punishment is handed out.
"We will not tolerate corruption in this great game."
Cricketers found guilty of cheating could be thrown out of the sport but Mr Lorgat said "a couple of individuals that might have got caught up in corrupt practices" should not bring the entire game to a standstill.
The team is due to play a friendly against Somerset on Thursday. Players refused to answer questions from reporters as they arrived at their hotel in Taunton.
And today media were refused access to Somerset's County Ground ahead of Pakistan's training session at the request of the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) and the PCB.
Pakistan's Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) - the country's highest law enforcement agency - has sent three investigators to the UK.
Reports have suggested other matches may have been fixed and up to 80 international Tests could form part of the police investigation.
The claims are the latest in a string of match-fixing allegations to dog the Pakistan team since the 1990s.
Pakistan prime minister Yousuf Raza Gilani, who officially launched the FIA investigation, said: "The latest fixing allegations have bowed our heads in shame."
Australia all-rounder Shane Watson and wicketkeeper Brad Haddin confirmed today they had both been approached by an Indian bookmaker in the past 16 months.
Watson was targeted during last year's Ashes tour of England, while a similar approach was made to Haddin during this year's World Twenty20 in the West Indies.
Speaking at a press conference in Sydney, both men said they reported the incidents to team management but insisted they were never specifically asked to alter the result of a match.
Watson said he was invited out for drinks by someone he did not know and reported the approach to team manager Steve Bernard and John Rhodes, who manages the ACSU in Australia and New Zealand.
"I think they checked footage of who the person was and it was someone that they were well aware of," he said.
"I heard that Brad Haddin had a similar conversation with an Indian guy and, after talking with him as well and describing the gentleman that was talking to us, it seemed like it was the same guy."
Kumar Sangakkara was in great form in the IPL tournament till he was injured. The Sri Lanka wicketkeeper-batsman now speaks to NDTV and says he's disappointed to miss all the action.
a tribute to south Africa's young batsmen and brilliant fielder ab de villiers
Few Test debutants can have been asked to play so many roles in such a short space of time as AB de Villiers, and fewer still can have risen to the challenge with such alacrity that, at the tender age of 21, he was already being regarded as the future of South African cricket. A product of Afrikaans Hoer Seunsskool in Pretoria, de Villiers was born to be a sportsman - although such was his natural talent, tennis, golf, cricket or rugby could have been his calling. Cricket won out, however, and after a prodigious spell in the South Africa Under-19 team, he made his debut for Titans in 2003-04, racking up five half-centuries in his 438 runs. He earned his call-up for the first Test against England the following season, and after a composed debut as an opening batsman, he was handed the wicketkeeping gloves for the second Test in Durban, which he helped save with a maiden Test half-century from No. 7. By the end of the series, however, he was back at the top of the order, and after falling eight runs short of a deserved century in the first innings at Centurion, he made instant amends second-time around.
His development continued at a rate of knots in the Caribbean, where he helped seal the series with a wonderful 178 at Bridgetown. On South Africa's tour of Australia at the end of 2005 he managed just 152 runs at 25.33 - despite playing Shane Warne well - and was sent home ahead of the tri-nation VB Series. When South Africa hosted Australia for a return series, de Villiers managed only one good Test, hitting 50 and 46 at Durban, and overall failed to showcase his undoubted talent. However, he was South Africa's highest scorer in a 2-0 loss to Sri Lanka in July-August with 217 runs, including two impressive fifties.
The 2006-07 South African season was a mixed bag, but his fielding, breathtaking, and his speed in the field, top-class, are two of his biggest assets even though he has failed to convince as a Test opener. He occasionally showed his best form during the 2007 World Cup, but South Africa needed him to kick on. He did just that in 2008. He became the first South African to hit a double hundred against India, and his match-winning knocks of 174 at Headingley and 106 not out in Perth paved the way for historic Test series wins in England and Australia.
Cricket Masterclass Wicketkeeping
No sooner has the series between India and Pakistan ended that some reports about the last match at Feroze Shah Kotla being fixed is also doing the rounds. Former England wicketkeeper batsman Paul Nixon has made these claims on a social networking website. Nixon has sparked controversy by alleging that Pakistan intentionally lost the third and final ODI against India at the Kotla Stadium. He also pulled up Mohammad Hafeez for playing a certain kind of shot towards the end of the innings. Earlier there have also been suggestions that the India vs Pakistan semi-final at the 2011 World Cup was fixed, but nothing concrete ever came out.
