England can win their first trophy of the winter by avoiding defeat in the second and final Twenty20 international against South Africa in Centurion.
Eoin Morgan's stunning 85 catapulted England to 202-6 in Friday's opener in Johannesburg, which proved just enough when rain curtailed the Proteas' chase.
Paul Collingwood (back), James Anderson (knee) and Graeme Swann (side) all skipped training on Saturday.
They must pass fitness tests on Sunday for England to name an unchanged side.
With Stuart Broad and Kevin Pietersen both officially unavailable until the one-day series, England have two fit reserves, Graham Onions and Adil Rashid.
Much of the talk on Saturday surrounded Morgan, who is attracting admiration for his ability to mix up clean, orthodox strikes with some unusual shot-making.
But the player downplayed the attention and insisted he was not yet an automatic selection.
"I was certainly happy with the way I did play and it's a building block towards where I want to be, but I'm far from cementing my place in the side," said the Dublin-born left-hander.
"I've only played a handful of games and I've still a long way to go.
"We've certainly put a positive slant on the series to come with the way we batted, the way we bowled and the way we fielded."
Eight of the nine sixes during England's innings came off the fast bowlers, with Dale Steyn, Albie Morkel and Charl Langeveldt conceding more than 110 runs between them in their 10 overs.
Morgan said of Steyn (1-40 from his four): "The wicket happened to be good and I didn't think he bowled particularly well."
