In the video, Bhuvneshwar ran the viewers through the match from his perspective. He gave an insight on how Dhawan's blistering knock in the first innings helped India post a competitive target. He also said that Rohit Sharma's quickfire 9-ball 21 was important for the visitors.
After bowling a match-winning spell on Sunday, Bhuvneshwar added that he wants to continue his form in the remaining matches.
"I hope the confidence of the first match in the second match too", said the Indian pacer.
With his 5/24 feat, Bhuvneshwar also became the second Indian after Yuzvendra Chahal to pick up a five-for in a T20Is. Bhuvneshwar was spot on with his bowling as he took the crucial wicket of Reeza Hendricks (70 runs) in the 18th over killing whatever hopes the hosts had against India.
Bhuvneshwar also became the first Indian paceman to claim a five-wicket haul in T20Is.
India beat South Africa by 28 runs and will take on the Proteas in the second T20I on Wednesday at the SuperSport Park in Centurion.
