Virender Sehwag fired a shot at British journalist Piers Morgan in the latest salvo between the swashbuckling ex-India opener and the ex-editor of The Mirror. Except this time he also directed his tweet towards Times Now editor-in-chief Arnab Goswami!
The Virender Sehwag-Piers Morgan Twitter war had reached its boiling point with Morgan challenging the 'Nawab of Najafgarh' to donate ₹1 million to charity if England win an ODI World Cup before India wins an Olympic gold medal.
Now, Newshour host and editor-in-chief of Times Now Arnab Goswami wanted to invite Sehwag and put him on the stand to fire of the next round in the war between him and Morgan. But Sehwag's public reply on Twitter ended that particular discussion once and for all.
Arnab Goswami wants me to speak on that British guys views on India on NewsHour,but that man doesnt deserve any airtime,hence I have denied

One could make the case that Arnab Goswami is the Piers Morgan of India. Both journalists bully their guests and dictate proceedings in their forum rather than allow an actual balanced debate to take place. Clearly Sehwag realised this and made his stance clear by retweeting some of his followers on Twitter.
Which one Arnab or british guy ? https://t.co/TN7aYf2Q3p
