Virender Sehwag gave Piers Morgan a fitting reply yet again after India lifted the third straight Kabaddi World Cup in Ahmedabad on Saturday.

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.

He even challenged Sehwag for rupees 1 million for charity on England winning an ODI World Cup before India wins another Olympic Gold medal.

However, Sehwag opted not to respond but his fans did hit back at Morgan.

Following India's World Cup triumph, Sehwag once again came on to the front-foot to celebrate team's victory and also timed it to perfection to take a jibe at England.

"India invented Kabaddi & r World Champs for 8th time. Elsewhere some country invented Cricket & r yet only good in correcting typos. #INDvIRN," Sehwag tweeted.

India put up a spirited show to beat Iran 38-29 in the final to lift the third successive World Cup. India were trailing 13-18 at the half-time.

A furious Morgan was clearly unhappy seeing Sehwag's Twitter rant and said Kabaddi is not a sport.

"Mate, we invented Darts & Curling but I wouldn't boast about being 'World Champions' at them," Morgan tweeted.

"Kabaddi's not really a sport, @virendersehwag - it's just a load of grown men running around slapping each other."

The battle between the two had restarted when India defeated England 69-18 in the Kabaddi World Cup earlier this week. Sehwag took to Twitter to congratulate the winners and also took a dig at England.

"England loose in a World Cup again. Only the sport changes. This time it's Kabaddi. India thrash them 69-18. All the best for semis #INDvENG," Sehwag tweeted.

Morgan was quick to check Sehwag for his spelling and replied, "it's lose." While Sehwag didn't reply to Morgan's jibe but his followers did troll the English journalist.
