Showing his true sportsman spirit, David Warner has wishes his Sunrisers Hyderabad teammates Shikhar Dhawan and Bhuvneshwar  Kumar on their stupendous success in the first T20I against South Africa in Johannesburg. 

While Dhawan scored 72, Bhuvneshwar Kumar registered his best figures in T20I cricket. His figures read 5 for 24 as India registered a 28 run win in the opening T20I. 

Warner is the leader of Sunrirsers Hyderabad in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Dhawan and Bhuvi are the key members of the side for last few years now. While the skipper and the fast bowler were retained by the franchise, they used the Right to Match (RTM) card for the swashbuckling left-hander. SRH were crowned champions in 2016 and these three players were key to their fortunes during the whole season.

Warner's tweet to Dhawan and Kumar read  “Well done @BhuviOfficial @SDhawan25 great work boys,”

Having won the ODI series 5-1, India started the T20I series on a winning note with Team India implementing their game plan perfectly. 

Warner who is currently leading the Australian T20I team in the Trans Tasman tri-series will be leading Australia in the final against New Zealand in Auckland on Wednesday. 

Dhawan's 72 triggered India's score to 203.Dhawan was ably supported by the Indian middle order of Kohli, Manish Pandey and MS Dhoni whose contribution turned out to be meaningful at the end. 

Bhuvneshwar Kumar then took 5 wickets to rattle the South African batting order as they folded up for 175. India thus lead the series 1-0 as off now with the second match on Wednesday in Centurion. 

Here is what David Warner tweeted.
