Virender Sehwag vs Piers Morgan: Viru knocks out British journalist again - This time without naming him
There is absolutely no difference in Virender Sehwag's style when it comes to his batting or use of social media.
New Delhi: There is absolutely no difference in Virender Sehwag's style when it comes to his batting or use of social media. (Before he challenged Virender Sehwag to Rs 10 lakh bet, 'embarrassed' Piers Morgan deleted this tweet)
During his playing days, Viru didn't just punish the bad balls, he dispatched the good ones too. Post retirement, he has brought that attitude to his interactions on social media networks.
You didn't mess with the former India opener on the field and you don't mess with him on Twitter now.
Perhaps British journalist Pier Morgan hadn't got that memo when he tweeted about India's failed Olympic Games campaign earlier in the month.
Viru jumped in on the debate, asking the controversial 51-year-old about England's form at cricket World Cups.

Not one to back off, Morgan came back for Round 2 after England posted a record-breaking total of 444 runs against Pakistan on Tuesday.
Buoyed by the performance of Eoin Morgan's side, Piers put Rs 10 lakh on the table to challenge Viru..
Hi @virendersehwag, I bet you 1 million rupees to charity that England wins a ODI World Cup before India wins another Olympic Gold. Accept?

As Morgan tweeted late in the night, Indian fans were eager to note Viru's response in the morning. Fortunately for them, Sehwag did not disappoint.
He knocked out Morgan for a second successive time.

Considering Morgan's track record, this is surely not the last episode of this saga.
