The war on Twitter between former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag and British journalist Piers Morgan just keeps on getting longer. It all started when Morgan took a dig at India’s performance at the Rio Olympics. The journalist took to Twitter to post a comment on India huge celebrations over the Olympic medals and said that the celebrations were embarrassing considering how India had only two medals from Rio despite having a population well over 1 billion. He also said that it was a shame that India couldn’t manage even a single gold medal at Rio.

The journalist received a lot of flak for his remarks and Sehwag led India’s reply. Turning the joke on Morgan, Sehwag asked Morgan how embarrassing it was to see his country’s national team fail to win the ODI World Cup despite being the pioneer of the game.

The war of tweets continued and then on August 3, Sehwag posted another tweet claiming that he was invited by  journalist Arnab Goswami to come and air his views on “that British guy” during his show The NewsHour. But the Nawab of Najafgarh said that the “guy” doesn’t deserve any airtime and refused the proposal.

Replying to this tweet, Morgan once again took a dig at India’s performance in the Olympics. He said that Sehwag refused the proposal to talk on the show only because he had nothing to defend India’s poor performance at the Olympics.


    An avid sports lover, i always wanted to pursue a career in football. But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan.
    You will never walk alone.
