"I can guarantee you Bumrah is going to tell how hard a fast bowler's life is," Rahul predicted in the video.
"Your job is easier to bat, hide behind a bat," Bumrah was heard telling Rahul.
"What did I tell you? Did I not call it?" Rahul bragged after his prediction came true.
After leading India to a convincing 4-1 win over Australia, Suryakumar Yadav was picked to lead the team in the T20I series against South Africa.
However, his first taste of captaincy away from home was delayed after the first match was washed out due to rain in Durban.
Both team square off in the second T20I later on Tuesday on Gqeberha (Port Elizabeth).
The 3rd T20I of the series will be played on Thursday in Johannesburg.
