Piers Morgan intensifies Twitter row with Virender Sehwag

Currently Piers Morgan is entangled in a Twitter row with former cricketer Virender Sehwag, with each tweet becoming more and more personal and insulting.

On Wednesday, Morgan took it a step further against the former India opener, challenging him to a bet of RS 10 lakh (one million rupees), teasing that the England cricket team would win a ODI World Cup before India won an Olympic gold medal.

Sehwag responded with a slap in the face, basically laughing at Morgan and undermining, not only his comments, but him as a person. Morgan of course did not take that lightly and responded with another tweet.

The encounter started between the two last week, with Morgan tweeting: 'Hi @virendersehwag, I bet you 1 million rupees to charity that England wins a ODI World Cup before India wins another Olympic Gold. Accept?'

In response to that proposition, Sehwag said: 'Some people's fortune is so bad, that Apply Apply, But No Reply ..Hahahaha'

Of course, Piers Morgan being Piers Morgan, didn't let that be the last say, and he followed up with a tweet that read: 'Never known you to shirk a challenge, Legend....#OneMillionRupees'

You can see the tweets below.

It is in the popular opinion though, despite the reply, Morgan has basically been trolled by the former cricketer.

Many also believe that Morgan went too far in criticising India for celebrating winning two Olympic medals, with the comment being viewed as very distasteful and disrespectful.

The TV personality suggested that it was ridiculous for a country with a population of 1.2 billion to celebrate winning just two medals at an Olympics.

The next ODI World Cup is set to take place in 2019 (in England), while we'll have to wait to Tokyo 2020 to see the next summer Olympic Games.

So there's quite a wait to see who comes out on top in this wager.
