Gavaskar says Virat hit those centuries playing cricketing shots not the slam bang trend

Virat Kohli's 26th century in the third ODI against New Zealand took him to fourth spot in the list of most century scorers - after Sachin Tendulkar, Ricky Ponting and  Sanath Jayasuriya.

Clearly, he is fast joining the club of greats.

The most fascinating aspect about the 27-year-old ace batsman, according to another great Sunil Gavaskar, is that he has hit all those tons playing cricketing shots and not following the modern day slam-bang trend.

Gavaskar went on to praise kohli further saying "Kohli's mind is like computer. It gauges where the fielders are easily and helps him clear the in-fielders easily."
