All-rounder Jacques Kallis insists South Africa will have a plan for Eoin Morgan in the second Twenty20 encounter and the upcoming one-day international series.
The Englishman's superb 85 not out proved the difference between the two teams at the Wanderers on Friday night - South Africa going down to a one-run defeat via the Duckworth-Lewis method.
Veteran Kallis was absent for that match but returns to Centurion for the second almost fully recovered from a side strain which prevented him from bowling in the recent series against Zimbabwe.
"He (Morgan) played really well, hit some really big sixes and is quite adaptable as well," said 34-year-old Kallis.
"He's quite a tough guy to bowl to, but we have sat down and come up with a few ideas which we will hopefully implement tomorrow and over the next few one day games."
England captain Paul Collingwood (57) also piled the hurt on the Proteas before the rain became another tormentor for the home side.
After England built up 202-6, the home side looked set for triumph at 127-3 after 13 overs before a sudden downpour ruined their chances of a victory.
The match was abondoned with the home side two runs short of victory and Kallis admitted: "I don't think I can recall a game where Duckworth-Lewis has actually worked for us.
"It's always seems to hurt us."
However, Kallis is adamant that the result does not hold much weight and that it will have no effect on the rest of the series.
"I think both sides walked away from that game - England having felt that they won the game but not really won it and we having walked away like we lost it but not really having lost it," he said.
"I don't think too much will be read into it. It's really sad that the weather did come into it because it was a sort of game that was setting the tone for what's going to be an unbelievable summer, I think."
