Known for his Twitter war with Virender Sehwag, long-time critic of England cricket team, Piers Morgan demanded for Alastair Cook's resignation again after they lost the series against India on Monday. Taking this as a chance, the Twitterati trolled the Englishman back with some hilarious tweets.
With Jonny Bairstow at the crease at the end of the day 4, we at least expected England to stage some sort of a fightback before the inevitable happened. Despite having four wickets in hand on the final day of the Mumbai Test, the visiting side did not even last an hour. Ravichandran Ashwin claimed all four wickets within a span of only five overs handing India a victory by an innings and 36 runs and sealing the series with a lead of 3-0.
Piers Morgan, who has been a long-term critic of England captain Alastair Cook was bitter following this loss, demanding Cook to resign from the post. Morgan, who is a big Kevin Pietersen fan, had previously asked for Cook's head after England succumbed to a humiliating 246 run defeat to India in Vizag. However, KP had asked Morgan to leave him out of his rants stating that youngsters deserved a chance to prove themselves on the highest level now. But that has not stopped the former CNN host from bringing the South African-born batsman back into the mix.

While most people chose to ignore the Brit, BBC analyst Sean Fletcher immediately replied asking requested Piers not to interrupt his show “Good Morning Britain” with his rants and not to bring KP into the mix again. But Morgan being the "Twitter celebrity" that he is, for the umpteenth time brought up the name that should not have been named again.

There has also been some controversy on in the Test after James Anderson claimed that the Indian conditions helped Virat Kohli "hide his flaws". Morgan was asked for his opinion by one of his followers Abhijeet Karnik. Morgan came up with a truly British answer, stating that it was a "shame" the English team could not follow the lead of the Indian captain in hiding their flaws
Shame our entire team wasn't as skilled at hiding their flaws... https://t.co/hGOAUIVlqY— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) December 12, 2016
As a Piers Morgan follower myself, I am waiting for the day when he asks Ian Botham and Graham Gooch to return to the English side to save the Empire.
