XtraTime Web Desk: South African spinner Paul Harris dragged Indian skipper Virat Kohli’s name while reacting to Kagiso Rabada-Steve Smith controversy. According to him Kohli behaved ‘ like a clown’ and yet no action was taken against him by the International Cricket Council.

Harris said on twitter about the two- match suspension on Rabada, after being found guilty of a Level 2 ICC Code of Conduct offence of 'inappropriate and deliberate physical contact with a player',

Virat fined 25 percent of match fee and received one demerit point for repeatedly complaining to the umpires about a damp ball and aggressively throwing it to the floor during the second test at Pretoria against South Africa.

Rabada received three demerit points and fine of 50 percent of match fee. Meanwhile, he got eight demerit points within 24- month’s period. Which lead him to two match suspension.  The incident happened in the first innings of the second test when moving towards the slips, Rabada made contact with Steve Smith with his shoulder.

Earlier Vernon Philander accused Smith for initiating the shoulder contract with Rabada but, later he deleted his tweet and claimed that his account was hacked.
