Mirpur, Bangladesh: Pressed into service after an injury to Mahendra Singh Dhoni, wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik on Tuesday said being an "outsider", he can add a bit of freshness to India's Asia Cup campaign after the battering in recent international engagements.
India will start their Asia Cup campaign with a match against Bangladesh here on Wednesday. Karthik, who was not a part of the squad which went winless in the recent tours of South Africa and New Zealand, said he is not scarred by the disastrous results. (India look to get back to winning ways)
The 28-year-old Indian has featured in 67 ODIs with a strike rate of 73.64.
