The British journalist runs into Ian Chappell, and returns with some Australian greetings
Not long ago, Piers Morgan, after throwing a couples of beamers on Twitter, found himself all padded and gloved in front of one of the fastest bowlers in cricket Brett Lee.
Result: Three fierce blows on the body -- one that knocked him out -- before Lee castled him with brute pace. The journalist returned with plenty to talk about, but Twitteratti didn't shy away from to take a dig at the loud mouth and appreciated Lee's effort to mute the presenter.
But it is hard to keep someone like Morgan quiet. After all, he talks for a living. And being a journalist, he finds himself at the right places at the right time.
So, Morgan now runs into another former cricketer. This time Ian Chappell.
Morgan meets Ian, says Hi, I'm Piers Morgan! Ian, like always didn't mince words, and gave a typical Aussie reply "No mate you are a d***head!" Meeting over!
Just met Ian Chappell for 1st time. 'Hi, Mr Chappell, I'm Piers Morgan,' I said. 'Nah mate, you're a dickhead,' he replied. Meeting over!— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) January 1, 2014
So it took Chappell just one hit to knock out Morgan.
But rest assured, this is not the last we have heard of Morgan. It won't take him long to set the tone for Round 2.
What is Morgan up to this time around? Will he challenge Chappell for face off? Will he bowl to Chappell?
