Piers Morgan's bet backfires, Virendra Sehwag & Twitter want him to pay up

There is something strange going on with Piers Morgan. After attempting to troll Indians for celebrating boisterously despite not winning a single gold medal at this year's Olympics at Rio, Morgan came back to have another go at it.

For those with the memory of a gold fish, the last time Morgan spoke about India's 'losing' streak, the result was major shipping session between him and 'Chatan' Bhagat by Twitter. This was followed by Indian cricketer Virendra Sehwag getting the last word in before Morgan was trolled by every Indian in possession of a Twitter account and hyper-nationalistic pride.

This time however, Morgan has gone a step ahead and displayed ignorance in the age of Google. A crime in itself. Last night, post the stroke of midnight Morgan tagged Sehwag and placed a bet of '1 million rupees' on England winning a cricket World Cup before India wins an Olympic gold.

Sehwag shut him up with a simple reminder that India has 9 Olympic gold medals in its kitty while England has zero World Cups to boast of. He also threw in a reminder that the Kohinoor still remains in the wrong country.

But what is Morgan if not doggedly persistent and foolhardy? He deleted his first tweet and then came back with this.

Twitter however, has finally had enough.
