MOHALI, India (Reuters) - India beat England by eight wickets in the third Test to go 2-0 up in the five-match series at the Punjab cricket Association Stadium on Tuesday.

Parthiv Patel top-scored for the hosts with a rapid unbeaten 67.

Earlier, England were bowled out for 236 in their second innings with Joe Root leading the way with a defiant 78.
