Sehwag’s cool response to Rs 1 million challenge leaves Piers Morgan baffled and you can’t stop laughing

Some arguments lead to no conclusion. British TV journalist Piers Morgan ought to know this better. But in a Twitter battle with Indian cricket legend Virender Sehwag, it seems the cricketer has left behind the journalist with a lesson, and for the good.

Some arguments lead to no conclusion. British TV journalist Piers Morgan ought to know this better. But in a Twitter battle with Indian cricket legend Virender Sehwag, it seems the cricketer has left behind the journalist with a lesson, and for the good. Having faced thousands of sarcastic comments from Indians, including Sehwag, for questioning India’s ‘over celebration’ of two wins at the Rio Olympics, the British journalist sought to get an edge by throwing a Rs 1 million bet at the Indian cricketer. “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.

Earlier, Morgan had to delete one of his tweet in which he had said, “Hi @virendersehwag, I bet you 1 million rupees to charity that England wins a ODI World Cup before India wins another Olympic Gold. Accept?” The tweet had backfired as not only Indians but Sehwag also pointed out the factual mistake.

When Morgan persisted with his challenge, it appeared the Twitter battle may soon turn from fun to nasty. However, Sehwag, who arguably carries a heart of gold, thought it wise to laugh out of the debate, but not without indirectly taking a potshot at the British journalist.

“Some people’s fortune is so bad, that Apply Apply, But No Reply ..Hahahaha,” the cricketer Tweeted. However, his response left Morgan baffled. Maybe he can never understand the way Indians function.

The Twitter battle between the two was triggered on August 24 when the latter took a potshot at India’s ‘over celebration’ of Rio Olympics medals, and her inability to win more medals, despite being the country with 1.2 billion people. “Country with 1.2 billion people wildly celebrates 2 losing medals. How embarrassing is that?”.

We hope that the debate between the two has ended, and for the good.
