England won their maiden World Cup by defeating New Zealand in a nail-biting finale at the 'Mecca of Cricket', Lord's on Sunday. The match went into the Super Over as both teams were tied at the identical score of 241 after 100 overs of cricket. Even the Super Over ended in a tie and England were crowned new champions based on maximum boundary count. The hosts got fourth time lucky after luck had eluded them in 1979, 1987 & 1992 respectively. At the same time, England also became the third host country after India (2011) and Australia (2015) to win the coveted trophy on home soil.

Post England's triumph, British journalist Piers Morgan came to settle scores with former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag. Morgan took to Twitter and greeted him. However, the senior journalist seemed to take a dig at the ex-vice captain.

Read Morgan's tweet here:

In case you are wondering why is Piers Morgan trying to settle scores with Viru, then here's what had happened. 

It all wend down during the 2016 Rio Olympics where Morgan had criticised the Indian contingent.

 Sehwag had hit back at Morgan saying that England who had invented Cricket were yet to win a single World Cup.

The British journalist had no answer back then. However, since his national cricket team has finally given him a chance to rejoice, Morgan is leaving no stone unturned in making the most of this opportunity.

Nonetheless, the 54-year-old also faced backlash from netizens.
