Piers Morgan gets trolled for correcting Virender Sehwag Piers Morgan gets trolled for correcting Virender Sehwag

The bittersweet friendship between British journalist Piers Morgan and cricketer Virender Sehwag continues on Twitter as was apparent when Morgan corrected Sehwag’s grammar on his tweet about India Vs England Kabaddi match. So, India defeated England with 69-18 during the Kabaddi World Cup on October 18 and Sehwag, being Twitter-savvy as he is, wished the team on the micro-blogging site, taking a jibe at England. “England loose in a World Cup again.Only the sport changes.This time it’s Kabaddi. India thrash them 69-18.All the best for semis #INDvENG,” he tweeted.

Morgan, who seems to be closely following Sehwag, retweeted his tweet with a correction. “It’s lose,” he wrote.

It’s not the first time Morgan has tried to engage Sehwag into a controversial conversation. Remember when he bet 1 million dollars to charity on England winning an ODI World Cup before India wins another Olympic Gold medal? “Hi @virendersehwag, I bet you 1 million rupees to charity that England wins a ODI World Cup before India wins another Olympic Gold. Accept?” he tweeted. Sehwag didn’t respond, but his parody account won the Internet when the person tweeted, “India Already Has 9 #Gold Medals, England Has Zero WC. As Far As Charity Is Concerned, You Already Owe Us Kohinoor. #ENGvPAK”.

Twitter, however, is an unforgiving place ad as soon as Morgan turned grammar Nazi on Sehwag, his fans couldn’t stop but troll the journalist.

        It was said that one of the "gifts," which the *beep* British so magnanimously left the desis, was the English language.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;But, going by the writing skills of scores of posters in various forums, it has become clear that the desis have let themselves lose (not loose) that "gift." The language used is so bad, it should be made a crime against communication.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Command of the firangi language was supposed to be how India would one-up on the Chinese in the business world. But, the *beep* Chinese turned out to be smarter. They gave the finger to India and surged far ahead, never to be matched again.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;All because of the *beep* desis, couldn't grasp the difference between, "lose" and "loose."

              Your heading says – ” Piers Morgan corrects Virender Sehwag’s grammar on Twitter. . . “. However, the mistake made by Sehwag relates to spelling and not grammar. Spelling and grammar are two different things.

                  Indian Express, you made the same sort of error. "Twitter, however, is an unforgiving place ad as soon as.." Though a small one but an error.

                    So, what's the difference between spelling and grammar? Spelling is part of grammar.

                      Obviously you are a . No wonder you run down Indians at the first opportunity while supporting your new found friend china. This is what you guys are good at, keep going. You might reach somewhere. As for Morgan, let keep correcting, which he seems to be good at.

                        Pierce Morgan is right .It is 'lose' and not 'loose' But was it necessary for himlt;br/gt;to do this kind of nit-picking. We are talking about a gamelt;br/gt;not grammer, I have deliberately made a spelling mistakelt;br/gt;to tease Morgan (if he says it!)lt;br/gt; Vengai Parthar
