Piers Morgan, 54, wore an England cricket shirt to celebrate their epic victory, which they won in a Super Over at Lord’s against New Zealand.
The Good Morning Britain host was at the match last night and non-stopped tweeted about the thrilling game.
Coverage on the ITV show was dominated by sports this morning, with much talk about the emotional and nail-biting game which England ended up winning.
However, one viewer wasn’t happy with their choice of headlines and slammed cricket as “boring”.
How dare you
They tagged Piers and wrote: “@piersmorgan get on with the rest of the news, had enough of boring cricket!”
Piers was certainly not happy with the fan and told that to turn over to BBC Breakfast instead.
The host hit back: “The boring cricket… THE BORING CRICKET… how dare you!!”
He went on: “This was the greatest cricket match in history, the greatest sporting thriller in history.
“I can’t have someone who doesn’t understand that watching @GMB again. Go watch @BBCBreakfast.”
The Life Stories presenter shared a picture of himself in and England shirt today, sat beside an equally happy Susanna Reid.
He captioned the snap: “Good Morning Britain.. WORLD CHAMPIONS.”
Piers was overwhelmed with the up-and-down match yesterday and at one point joked the excitement was becoming too much.
He commented: “I’ve no idea what the f**k is going on but this is the greatest game of cricket I’ve ever watched and the excitement may kill me.”
On Good Morning Britain, Piers led calls to give the England cricketers an open-top bus victory parade through London to celebrate their win.
The governing body refused to do so as the team have The Ashes to prepare for.
A petition on Change.org is gaining momentum for a parade, and Piers is certainly backing it as well as he told viewers: “Where’s the open top bus parade?
“I want these guys on a bus going through Trafalgar Square this week.”
Instead of an open-top bus, the England heroes are going to descend upon The Oval today.
Fans can attend for free from 10.30am to see the stars with the Cricket World Cup trophy.
They celebrated with their wives and girlfriends yesterday, and partied into the night.
