Twitter war is not new between former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag and British journalist Piers Morgan. The controversial journalist took a jibe at Indian women’s cricket team, who lost to England in the ICC Women’s World Cup final by mere 9 runs at Lord’s on Sunday.
Morgan didn’t miss the opportunity to attack Sehwag and tweeted “You OK, buddy @virendersehwag? #WWC2017final ???” He tagged the former Indian cricketer in his tweet.
Morgan didn’t stop there. In his second tweet, he took a screenshot of his previous tweet, posted almost a year back and asked Sehwag to have a bet of Rs 1 million in charity if England win a World Cup before India bags another gold at the Olympics. He posted the screenshot saying “Ahem, @virendersehwag... pay up!”
As expected, Sehwag, who has done mastery in Twitter, gave a befitting reply and he also got support from almost entire social media community. "Me and all of India prouder even in this loss than you can ever be mate. We fought well &will only get better & stronger. Enjoy for a change!" tweeted Sehwag.
