When Virat Kohli gets going, it's almost impossible to stop him. During the second day's play of second Test match against South Africa at Pune, the Indian skipper notched up his 26th hundred, replete with delightful shots.

But the stand-out shot was his century reaching straight drive, off the fourth ball of the 109th over, bowled by Vernon Philander. Kohli, anticipating the length and line of the delivery, leaned forward and presented a straightest of bats, then a gentle connection was all that he needed. The replays showed the full face of the bat as the ball drove through the bowler. A sheer visual delight for any cricket fan.
