A leading ECB executive made a highly disparaging comment on social media on Tuesday about top pundit Geoffrey Boycott's views from the Ashes Test in Adelaide.

Clare Connor, director of England women's cricket and a former England captain, listening to BBC's Test Match Special, didn't mince her words when she tweeted: 'God, the arrogant, all-knowing opinions of Boycott are bordering on unbearable this morning.'

The post was later deleted by Connor — whose partner is ECB technical director Andy Flower — after it was pointed out to the ruling body what she had said about Boycott when TMS are the ECB's long-time radio rights holders.

An ECB spokesman said that in hindsight Clare felt that her tweet had been an error and made in haste.
