Electing to bat first, England produced a competitive total of 228 for seven in their 50 overs against Mithali Raj and her girls.
Former opening batsman Virender Sehwag, who had himself scored a valiant 82 in the 2003 World Cup final that India lost to Australia, took to Twitter to congratulate the Indian women's cricket team.
However, the Indian eves seemed to los their wits towards the end, losing seven wickets for just 28 runs to be all out for 219 runs in 48.4 overs.
A well-known personality, Piers Morgan is one of the most followed journalists on Twitter, with nearly 6 million followers. He responded to Morgan's tweet in an even more mature way.More news: Dwayne Johnson Announces New Movie With Apple's Siri As Co-Star
Sehwag was aided by his fans too. The duo has regularly engaged in Twitter battles ever since and it has only got better and better. "Thank you girls. Salute your spirit", Sehwag tweeted after India fell marginally short in the run chase. "Enjoy for a change!", he wrote. The moment England women cricket team defeated India and lifted the World Cup trophy, he sent out a tweet which will surely make Sehwag a little angry.
"You OK, buddy @virendersehwag?", he wrote on Twitter.
Sehwag and Morgan's Twitter war has become quite famous since the Rio Olympics in August when the Englishman took a dig at India's medal celebrations. After the Indian eves' defeat to the hosts, Morgan couldn't help but poke the former Indian opener on the loss.
