Pretoria, South Africa: India A captain Cheteshwar Pujara is a satisfied man after his team won the tri-series beating Australia A in the final but had a word of caution for the senior team stating that Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Co might not get as flat tracks that they got during this series.

"I don't think the conditions will be the same when we come back. Wickets are quite flat out here at the moment and when we come in December, the conditions will be hugely different and we are aware about it. It's about getting used to the conditions, not the wickets only but the weather and other aspects of this game," Pujara was quoted as saying by the ESPN Cricinfo.

More than 800 runs were scored in one of the league games involving India A and South Africa A and Pujara admitted that it's difficult to have a plan if 400 plus total looks chaseable.
