Indian skipper Virat Kohli reacted to the clown comment made by former South African spinner Paul Harris. The former Proteas spinner had tweeted earlier that Kohli had reacted like a clown in the three Test matches on the South African tour. Harris had tweeted this when Kagiso Rabada was fined by the International Cricket Council in the series full of controversy against Australia.

Meanwhile, Virat Kohli asked who is Paul Harris while addressing the questions on his newly launched official app. In fact, Kohli had landed himself in hot waters recently. Kohli asked the fan to leave India after the fan told him that he likes Australian and England batsmen more than Indian batters.

Thus, Virat Kohli was severely slammed on social media. However, Kohli came up with his clarification stating he had reacted to “these Indians”. Although, there is no doubt Kohli should have been smarter in his choice of words.

Paul Harris had written on his Twitter handle, “If he has to then everyone does. 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”.

“When was this? Was this during South Africa? Was this when we were in South Africa? Paul Harris, ye kon hai (Who is he)? He looks like a cricketer,” Kohli said while reacting to a user’s post.

Virat Kohli hasn’t had the best of starts to his official app as his first session has already landed him in a lot of trouble. Kohli has been breaking all the records in the game and would like to stay away from any kind of controversies which demeans his image as well as his team.

Here is the video in which Virat Kohli talks about it (play after 3:00).
