After the Indian bowlers wrapped England up, Parthiv Patel led the chase with an unbeaten 67 & helped the hosts beat England by 8 wickets and take an unassailable lead of 2-0 in the series. What created a buzz on Twitter though was Shami's bouncers & Parthiv's quick-fire innings.
After ending the day 3 in a commanding position with the visitors at 78/4, the Indian spinners did not waste much time with Jadeja removing nightwatchman Gareth Batty in the second over of the day for a duck.
Although Joe Root and Haseeb Hameed delayed the inevitable with patient half-centuries, India managed to wrap up the English resistance and ensured that they had to chase only just over a hundred runs. A half-century from Parthiv Patel helped India attain the target of 103 quickly and strengthen their grip on the series.
That one 'rare' over!

Bouncer hit on the helmet
Still better than Saha!
Parthiv Patel and Kamran Akmal can compete with each other in dropping catches. They are also in same height category.— Silly Point (@FarziCricketer) November 29, 2016
Must feel sad for him, stayed just a two overs!
Batty should play online Day-Night test match. #IndvEng— Silly Point (@FarziCricketer) November 29, 2016
Honest letter from an Indian fan!
Any Indian fan!

Be like Batty!
Unselfish Batty. Didn't bat, didn't bowl, didn't take review.— if Shrikant,who can? (@HomerOpines) November 29, 2016
Typical Umesh Yadav to spoil the over.— Nikhil 🏏 (@CricCrazyNIKS) November 29, 2016
Hameed delaying India's victory!
Praise for Hameed in Mohali >> Praise for Hameed in Vizag >> Praise for Hameed in Rajkot.— Chetan Narula (@chetannarula) November 29, 2016
This kid is the real deal. #IndvEng
Last 10 yrs we haven't spoke about keeper dropping catches. Now we saw Saha & Parthiv dropping regularly. #INDvENG— Annish (@ItsAnnish) November 29, 2016

Glad Cook won the toss in this game. That's the only ocassion he may get to see "won" writter against his name on this tour. #IndvEng— cricBC (@cricBC) November 29, 2016
Parthiv looks the same though!

Otherwise his Mom will scold him!
Parthiv in a hurry to finish this and go home. He doesn't want to get grounded on reaching home after 6 PM again. #IndvEng— cricBC (@cricBC) November 29, 2016
What is he not capable of?
Next Test Parthiv Patel could play as wicketkeeper, opener, third seamer. #INDvENG— Gaurav Sethi (@BoredCricket) November 29, 2016
Finally he got the guts and the strength!
