Mohali: Parthiv Patel struck a whirlwind half-century as India thrashed England by eight wickets in the third Test at the Punjab Cricket Association I.S. Bindra Stadium here on Tuesday.

Patel stormed to 67 runs off 54 balls as India overhauled the 103-run target a short while after the tea break on the fourth day.

Indian skipper Virat Kohli remained unbeaten on six runs at the other end. Patel hit a boundary to overhaul the target as India finished at 104/2.

Pacer Chris Woakes and leg-spinner Adil Rashid bagged a wicket each for England.

India now lead the five-match Test series 2-0. The hosts had won the second Test in Visakhapatnam by 246 runs while the first match of the series had ended in a draw at Rajkot.

Earlier, resuming at the overnight score of 78/4, England lost quick wickets to end their second innings at 236 runs.

Haseeb Hameed posted a half-century in difficult conditions to remain unbeaten on 59 and help take England past the 200-run mark.

The visitors were all out for 283 runs in their first innings while India had posted 417.
