Paul Harris has lashed out at the International Cricket Council (ICC) for not taking any action against India captain Virat Kohli, who, according to the former South Africa left-arm spinner, behaved “like a clown” during the recent three-Test series against the Proteas.

Harris’ comments come after South Africa seamer Kagiso Rabada lodged an appeal after he was banned for the last two Tests of the ongoing series against Australia.

Rabada was banned for the remainder of the series for two separate incidents that occurred during the second Test in Port Elizabeth.

The first incident saw the 22-year-old make shoulder-to-shoulder contact with Australia skipper Steve Smith, while the second was for his celebration after dismissing opening batsman and vice-captain David Warner.

As a result, Rabada was fined 65 percent of his match fee and handed four demerit points.

However, Harris feels that Kohli should have punished by the ICC for the way he acted during the Test series against South Africa.

Harris also believes that the ICC “have an issue with Rabada or with the Proteas in general”.

“I watched Kohli behave like a clown for three tests here in SA and nothing. Seems to me that @ICC either have an issue with Rabada or with the Proteas in general,” Harris said on Twitter.
