Piers Morgan had bet Virender Sehwag that he would give Rs. 1 Million to charity if India won a gold medal in Olympics before England wins an ODI World Cup and Sehwag, along with his supporters had just the answers for Morgan

So, when Piers Morgan tweeted, complaining about Indians celebrating the victory of Indian athletes in Rio Olympics 2016, saying “Country with 1.2 billion people wildly celebrates 2 losing medals. How embarrassing is that?”


Indians lashed back and served him for crashing the much deserved celebratory moment for India. Amongst those who gave the British journalist, Piers Morgan, a piece of their minds was the Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag. The cricketer gave Morgan a reply for which he, probably, wasn’t prepared. “We cherish every small happiness’, But Eng who invented Cricket & yet2win a WC, still continue to play WC. Embarrassing?” Sehwag replied in the coolest way possible.”

Morgan, expressed that if the former British cricketer Kevin Pietersen had still been a part of the team, England would have won the World cup.

To this, Sehwag, ever so politely, agreed with Morgan while pointing out that Kevin was originally from South Africa and asked what it was that bothered Morgan if the Indians celebrated the victories of their athletes. 


While this could have been the end of the Twitter feud, but the argument intensified. Morgan did not wish to accept his defeat and decided to bet Sehwag that England could win an ODI World Cup before India could win a Gold in Olympics. Morgan also proposed that he would donate One million Rupees to a charity if India wins a gold medal in Olympics before England wins the ODI.

Little did Morgan know that he was inviting trouble for himself. After having to face the Indian Tweeters, it would have been wise if he had learnt from the experience. However, what followed, earned Virender Sehwag the title “Virender Savage”. Sehwag and may other Indian tweeteraties pointed out to Morgan that India had already won 9 gold medals in Olympics, along with winning two ODI World Cups. They also expect Morgan to pay up for the bet he, ever so excitingly, proposed before Sehwag.



After Sehwag received no reply from Morgan, he Tweeted.


Needless to say, that the memes and jokes that followed Morgan’s Tweet to Sehwag were in plenty.
