From Rio Olympics to Kabaddi World Cup, Piers Morgan-Virender Sehwag rekindle Twitter 'love'

India's historic Kabaddi World Cup 2016 victory on Saturday night saw a flurry of congratulatory messages on social media, as sportspersons and celebrities praised Anup Kumar and his men for a comprehensive victory over Iran in the final. But the highlight of these messages was again a mini-battle between Virender Sehwag and Piers Morgan on Twitter.

After an intense 38-29 victory over Iran, India was reveling in celebrations and 'Viru' found it a perfect moment to rekindle his long-running feud with Morgan.

A known Twitter troll, there was no way Morgan wouldn't accept Sehwag's challenge and replied with a couple of tweets aimed at the Nawab of Najafgarh.

Sehwag's jibe on correcting typos was because of an earlier Twitter battle with the British journalist after England had been decimated by India in the Kabaddi World Cup by a massive 69-18 margin.

While Sehwag didn't respond to Morgan's latest tweet, many of his followers were quick to attack the British journalist.

The Sehwag-Morgan Twitter battle has been going on for quite a while now. It had all started at the Rio Olympics 2016, where India had yet another underwhelming performance, with just a silver and bronze medal each. Morgan had then trolled Indian fans, questioning their enthusiasm, and even wagering Rs 1 million, on whether England would win a cricket world cup before India can add to its Olympic gold medal tally.
