The England and Wales Cricket Board says it has fined batsman Kevin Pietersen an "undisclosed sum" following comments he made on Twitter after discovering he had been dropped from the limited-overs squads.

Pietersen admitted to two charges at a disciplinary hearing at Lord's on Monday, and apologised to the ECB and the England team management for his actions.

In a statement, the ECB said it "considered his comments to be prejudicial to the interests of Team England."

Pietersen had already apologized for using a profanity in last week's Twitter post, which was quickly deleted ahead of the official squad announcement.
