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.
