His teammate Ngidi, who is set to play in his hometown, Durban, walked away with the Man of the Match accolade as a reward for his displays in the 1st T20I match.
Meanwhile, South Africa captain Quinton de Kock has urged his troops to be hard-hearted ahead of the second match in KwaZulu-Natal.
"It was very tight, but we knew that halfway through. We had to keep to our basics and we could end up winning," De Kock said.
"We knew this wicket gets slow and is tough to bat on in the last five overs.
"We'll enjoy it tonight but the planning for the second game in the series starts tomorrow and we want to be ruthless."
The 3rd and final match is scheduled to be played at the SuperSport Park in Centurion on the 16th of February 2020.
