Full list of Indian Test batsmen getting hit-wicket; Virat Kohli is last Indian to get dismissed in bizarre fashion

New Delhi, July 17: Hit-wicket is one the most bizarre way to get dismissed in the game of cricket. In its history of more than a century, Test cricket has witnessed 160 occasions when the on-strike batsmen either stepped on to the stumps while batting, or hit the bat on to the stumps, or the headgear falls on to the stumps.

If one talks about Indians getting dismissed hit-wicket there have been 22 occasions in Test cricket so far. The last time an Indian was hit-wicket was way back in 2016 during the first Test against England at Rajkot.

Mohinder Amarnath has been dismissed hit-wicket three times in the longer format of the game. Kohli was the first Indian captain since Lala Amarnath, in 1949 (versus West Indies, in Chennai), to be dismissed hit-wicket. The last man before Kohli to be given out hit-wicket was VVS Laxman, in 2002, against West Indies.
