A top Kiwi cricketer who sent an expletive filled SMS to a fellow cricketer, turned hack, will not be punished.

Scott Styris sent the text to former teammate-turned-commentator Mark Richardson after a negative newspaper article written by Richardson following the controversial one-day match against England.
