India vs England, 3rd Test: Here's how Twitter reacted to hosts' comprehensive win at Mohali


Mohali: India comprehensively won the third Test against England, sealing the deal with eight wickets in hand. The hosts now have a comfortable 2-0 lead in the five-match series, and will be looking for more glory during the fourth Test in Mumbai. England, on the other hand, will be looking to avoid another embarrassing defeat and put on a spirited show, much like their young batsman Haseeb Hameed.

Playing his first test in eight years, Parthiv Patel smashed an unbeaten 67 off 54 balls and the hosts chased down their 103-run victory target for the loss of Murali Vijay and Cheteshwar Pujara.
