There was enough help for fast bowlers and wasn't much for spinners.<br /> <br /> I think their fast bowlers didn't bowl well, but ours did better which was required," Pujara told reporters after the match.<br /> <br /> Out-of-favour <a href="/tags/Zaheer-Khan/post" target="_blank">Zaheer Khan</a> sparked a sensational West Indies A collapse with his three-wicket burst as the visitors conceded the match at 242 for nine in their second innings in the 13th over after lunch on the final day at <a href="/tags/KSCA-Stadium/post" target="_blank">KSCA Stadium</a>.<br /> <br /> The left-arm seamer bagged four for 59 in the second innings to help India A level the three-match series 1-1.<br /> <br /> Pujara said the team was confident of getting <a href="/tags/Narasingh-Deonarine/post" target="_blank">Narasingh Deonarine</a> out as the Indian quickies were getting help from the track.<br /> <br /> "We knew their wicketkeeper [Chadwick Walton] will not bat [due to injury]. So, we wanted one wicket and were confident of having him," he said.<br /> <br /> Pujara, who hit a magnificent 306 not out in the first innings, said the failure in first two Test matches motivated him to play a big knock.<br /> <br /> "When I get to my hundred, that's when I start playing my strokes because I know the conditions and capitalise on bowlers getting tired.<br /> <br /> "It is not an easy job to bat for nearly ten hours which requires a lot of stamina. I had been working on it for the last four to five months," he said.<br /> <br /> The Saurashtrian run-machine rated his third triple hundred as one of the best innings in domestic circuit because the track was helping the fast bowlers.<br /> <br /> On Zaheer's five-wicket haul (five for 92) in the match, India A coach <a href="/tags/Lalchand-Rajput/post" target="_blank">Lalchand Rajput</a> said the Mumbaikar was slowly getting into the groove and certainly looks match-fit.<br /> <br /> "In the first innings, Zaheer bowled really well. I am sure these [First-Class] matches will help him get back to his rhythm," he said.
