The British journalist, who is an avid Arsenal fan, has had many recent altercations with Sehwag on twitter regarding India's performance at now concluded Rio Olympics.
Piers has widely slammed Indian athletes who performed at the 2016 Olympic Games and faced a severe backlash from Indians who targeted his twitter account in response to the criticism. Several celebrities including Viru also responded to the British journalists's social media activity targeting India.
This time, Morgan jokingly requested to the explosive former Indian cricket opener, asking him if he would stay at the Emirates for another day as he needs him to play up-front for the Gunners in their English Premier League encounter with rivals Chelsea on Saturday.
Can you stay in there & play up front tomorrow? We need some explosive firepower. https://t.co/7SKvFjSkul

Arsenal have often been criticised for not fielding an established striker and with Morgan being aware of Sehwag's ultra-explosive nature, joked if he would help the Gunners's misery upfront too. (READ: EPL 2016-17, Gameweek 6 PREVIEW: Jose Mourinho feels heat as Arsene Wenger marks anniversary)
