New Delhi, Aug 31: An excited British journalist Piers Morgan tried making fun of India and provoke former India cricketer Virender Sehwag after England created history by scoring highest ever ODI total on Tuesday (August 30).

Match scorecard; England post a record 444/3

But his attempt to poke fun at India backfired and the English scribe had to delete his tweet. Morgan corrected his tweet to challenge Sehwag again and the Indian gave him another fitting reply.

No sooner than England posted 444/3 in 50 overs against Pakistan in the 3rd ODI at Trent Bridge, Morgan took to Twitter to poke fun at Virender Sehwag, who trolled the English journalist a few days back for mocking India's celebration of winning 'two' Olympic medals at Rio.

An enthusiastic Morgan challenged Sehwag for a million rupees (Rs 10 lakh) that England will win a Cricket World Cup before India wins an Olympic Gold.

Morgan faced massive embarrassment when twitterati reminded him that India already has won 9 gold medals in Olympics. Faced with this criticism, he deleted his tweet.

To save himself from further embarrassment, the journalist tweeted challenging Sehwag to donate Rs 10 lakh to charity if his country wins a cricket World Cup before India wins 'another' Olympic gold. But it was already too late as Indians on Twitter had trolled Morgan for his gaffe.

Later, Sehwag too mocked the British journalist for his unnecessary provocation without naming the latter in his epic rebuttal. Seems Sehwag thought it's better to ignore Morgan's challenge.

It seems that the "Nawab of Najafgarh" is definitely enjoying the banter with the British journalist, on Twitter.
