Virat Kohli today provided 22nd instance of an Indian batsman getting out hit-wicket in Tests. He is the 20th Indian to suffer this fate. The difference in count is because of Mohinder Amarnath, who suffered this fate on three occasions (only Dennis Compton got out in this way on more occasions than him in all Tests- five times).

Interestingly Virat had also been out hit-wicket in an One-Day International - vs England at Cardiff in 2011 off the bowling of Graeme Swann after making 107.

This makes him only the second Indian batsman to be out in this fashion in both Tests and ODIs. Nayan Mongia is the only other to suffer this fate.

On day four of the first Test against England in Rajkot, Kohli looked in fine touch and struck some crisp boundaries in his knock of 40 before the right-hander's back leg hit the stumps and dislodged a bail while trying to pull a delivery from legspinner Adil Rashid.

Kohli stood at the wicket in disbelief before trudging off with his team at 361/6.
