English journalist Piers Morgan and former Indian cricket Virender Sehwag have been at a Twitter war since last year. The two gentlemen do not cease to miss an opportunity to take a dig at one another. Recently, when the India Women lost to the England Women in the finals of the ICC Women’s World Cup 2017, Piers Morgan resurfaced the social media banter with a tweet for Virender Sehwag.

In a subtle dig where he said nothing but still managed to ridicule Sehwag, and perhaps many other Indian cricket fans too. He asked Sehwag if he was alright following the defeat that the Indian ladies had. Many felt that the tweet from Morgan was quite insensitive.

Sehwag, in his response, gave a befitting reply that should have potentially stopped Morgan from tweeting again. Sehwag conceded that despite the defeat, the nation is still proud of the players. He also noted that someone like Morgan will never understand what the stage and opportunity meant for the Indian team. Also, he added that the Indian team will only get better and stronger from here on.

Well, Morgan was not done yet. He scrolled back to one of his tweets to bring back the discussion. The war between the two had started in 2016 when Morgan had ridiculed the idea of India – a nation of a billion population – celebrating handful of gold medals. Virender Sehwag had then shut his mouth saying that the Indians love to celebrate every occasion irrespective of how big or small the achievement is.

It was right then that Piers Morgan had challenged Sehwag that England will win a World Cup before India gets another Olympic Gold medal. Now, after England Women won the WWC 2017, Morgan posted the same update and asked Sehwag to pay up for the lost bet. He tweeted, “Ahem, @virendersehwag… pay up!”
