Virat Kohli was suspended hit-wicket after scoring 40 runs against England in the first Test in Rajkot
There has been no another Indian captain in the history of cricket that has been hit-wicket in a Test match in last 67 years and there is no Indian player who has been hit-wicket in the last 14 years in Test cricket.
Yes, the India captain Virat Kohli had a bizarre dismissal against England in the first innings of the first Test in Rajkot as he stepped on the leg-stump after playing a shot. He stood on the pitch in utter disbelief that he had to go back to the awning after being dismissed hit-wicket.
In the 120th over of the Indian innings, leg-spinner Adil Rashid bowled a short delivery to Kohli who pulled it to deep mid-wicket. England wicket-keeper Jonny Bairstow began celebrating after the shot. He pointed towards a fallen bail off the stumps. Kohli, who has a strong pull shot against spin due to his step back in the crease, had stepped on the leg-stump as replays showed later.
Before Virat Kohli, VVS Laxman was the last batsman to be out hit-wicket in Tests for India. He was suspended against West Indies in 2002. Kohli now also has a record that he is the first player to be out hit-wicket against the same opposition in ODIs and Tests.
India was rocked by two early dismissals on day four of the first Test as Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane returned to the awning. India went into Lunch at 411/6, trailing England by 126 more runs.
