Warner and Smith troll Piers Morgan over Ashes win

England's most prominent internet troll Piers Morgan's brash confidence in an Ashes victory over Australia in Adelaide has come back to bite him.

The TV personality opted to fill his Twitter feed with messages about the Australians' misfortune late in the second Test:


His most prominent tweet came during England's push towards victory on day four:

Steve Smith copped the brunt of Morgan's brashness after wasting Australia's two reviews in the space of just a few minutes during England's fourth-innings chase.

He even tried to swing Test legend Shane Warne into worrying about a win, but it didn't work.

Australia cleaned up England's tail before the end of the first session on day five to take a 2-0 lead in the Ashes.

While many fans flooded his account with mentions of laughter, Morgan at least copped it on the chin.

But it wasn't over.

Australian opener David Warner took time out of his celebrations in the rooms to grab a photo with his relieved skipper.

And the photo was sent straight to Morgan, who promptly shared it for all to see.

He hasn't tweeted about cricket since, which is probably a smart idea.

His new subject -- Donald Trump -- is the only person in the world in a worse spot than England and their Ashes hopes.
