When it comes to Test cricket, there are still some people around today who believe that it is long and boring and, on some occasions, even pointless.

When you consider that you can spend all of the time watching it, for it to then be declared a draw, you can understand why some aren't so keen on the spectacle.

Although, we don't really need to mention what happened in boxing the other week, do we?

Anyway, with that said, there is no denying that there is still plenty of excitement to be had from Test cricket, which has been proved by the world class catch that took place in the Test between India and Australia.

There have been plenty of impressive catches in cricket over the decades, but there are not many that can compare with the one-handed wonder-catch which we witnessed from the outstretched Virat Kohli, who almost looked like he had extendable arms.

The catch came straight after the return to the field from the tea break, with India's Ishant Sharma taking the ball for the first over back.

The short-pitched delivery led to Australia's batsman Peter Handscomb swinging big, launching the ball towards what looked like being a four, before Virat leaped out of nowhere, stretching as far as he could and clutching the ball to the palm of his hand.

Upon landing, Kohli was straight up on to his feet and running around in celebration, and who could blame him after a catch like that?

Virat Kohli has been a very strong player for India for many years now and he continues to show why he is the right man to captain his country.

If India can go on to win this Test and the series, then that catch will be even more impressive than it already is.

Who do you think will win this Test series between India and Australia?
