Former India cricketer Virender Sehwag is a popular man on Twitter and has been trending on the social networking website ever since he joined it. Sehwag's birthday wishes for celebrities, his former teammates and opponents have become legendary and his followers keenly wait for his birthday tweets almost on a daily basis.

Sehwag's tweets and his sense of humour bowled over majority of his fans and followers barring one person. Popular journalist and British TV personality, Piers Morgan, and Sehwag have been engaged in a twitter duel all throughout last year with both taking cheeky jibes at each other quite frequently.

It all started with Morgan poking fun at India after the rousing welcome it gave to badminton star PV Sindhu and wrestler Sakshi Malik when they returned to the country with a silver and a bronze medal from the Rio Olympics in August respectively. Sehwag immediately hit back at Morgan and was hailed by the Twitterati for his reply.

Since then duo have regularly taken digs at each other regularly. But they finally seemed to have buried the hatchet and started afresh in the new year.

Sehwag on Saturday posted a tweet asking his followers asking them to write about their best moments with him in 2016.

Within minutes Sehwag's twitter handle was flooded with replies from his fans and followers and among them was Morgan with his reply as well.

But this time Sehwag decided against engaging in another battle with Morgan and instead wrote:

Morgan re-tweeted Sehwag's post and thus, brought an end to this chapter or so it seems.
