After that wonderful win against the Proteas Indian team captain, Virat Kohli called it"one of our most balanced performances".  He stated: "This was one of our most balanced performances. We never let the run rate drop less than 10.5. I was thinking maybe 220 at the 16 over mark. The basic message to the team was we are here till 25th. We can't go away before that and have to make the best of every time here,"


The southpaw Shikhar Dhawan played a wonderful knock of 72 runs in 39 balls along with him the Hitman scored 21 of just 9 balls.


 About team’s performance, Kohli voiced: “Very impressive from the boys. It was a good wicket to bat on. Although Rohit did not get many, but the start off 21 off 9 gave us the start. Shikhar was outstanding. It was a total team batting performance,"


The Young flamboyant Bhuvneshwar become the first Indian pacer and the second Indian bowler to take a five-wicket haul in T20 match, also he is the only Indian bowler to take five wickets all in every format of the game.


 About Bhuvi’s performance the Indian captain said: "With the ball, Bhuvi showed his experience. We could always bank on Jassi (Jasprit Bumrah) and Unadkat did well as well,"


The Indian skipper also gave an update on his leg injury which occurred last day during the 13th over of South African innings.


He added: "The injury was early on in the innings when I went for the single. It was my glute and thankfully not my hammy. You know how I am, I had to bend bit more quickly. Then I felt a little bit more stiffness in my glute and that is why I went off. Not to be stupid and tear a muscle, I decided to go off and get it checked,"


On this Wednesday India will play the second T20 match against the Porteas at Centurion.
