Stylish Indian Batsman Virat Kohli was on fire today in the 5th and last ODI against England. Finalyl one match in which india seems to be on fire and could score past 300 today. Kohli got a splendid 103 runs hitting some massive boundaries and completing a century stand with Rahul Dravid (on his swanswong ODI innings)

But then he got HIT WICKET – yes a Hit Wicket – details from cricinfo

Swann to Kohli, OUT, 86.1 kph, Hit-wicket, Kohli’s gone, he rocked on the back foot to work that square and rocks back far enough to dislodge the bail on middle and leg stump, that’s gone, Kieswetter spotted that and appealed and Kohli has to go after a delightful innings
Here are some pictures

From @TMSscorer. Kohli is the 56th man to be out hit wicket in ODI’s. The last Indian was Sachin Tendulkar.

@Not since Ricky Ponting stood on his stumps after hooking James Sutherland for six has a hit wicket seemed so unfair. Kohli was great.
