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. "Enjoy for a change!", he wrote.
Earlier on Sunday (July 23), Indian eves ended up as the runner ups for the second time in a World Cup final, as they lost the game by 9 runs.
England, being put into bat, posted a total of 228 runs.
The Indian eves rode on half-centuries from opener Punam Raut and Harmanpreet Kaur to nearly overhaul the target. "Thank you girls. Salute your spirit", Sehwag tweeted after the match.
In a stark contrast between the two English sides, the men's team are yet to win an ODI World Cup although they've been part of three finals and five semifinals over all.
"Me and all of India prouder even in this loss than you can ever be mate".
Former India cricketer Virender Sehwag gave an epic respone to silence eminent British journalist Piers Morgan's dig at him on Twitter.
No sooner that Morgan had tweeted, Indians joined Viru in reminding Morgan that they knew better than minding the loss and was in fact, nothing bust proud of their team's performance.
You OK, buddy @virendersehwag?
Morgan took aim at India after their gold medal-less outing at the 2016 Rio Olympics.
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 respectively from the Rio Olympics in August past year.
