Mirpur, Bangladesh: His team is on the verge of being knocked out of the Asia Cup after back-to-back losses but India's stand-in skipper Virat Kohli said he is not at all shocked by the prospect as his side is massively inexperienced even though it has shown "character".

India have lost consecutive matches to Sri Lanka and arch-rivals Pakistan in the five-team event and are all but out of contention for a spot in the final.

"I'm not shocked at all. I'm really proud of the way the boys fought it out. I'm really proud of the way the team showed character in the field and with the bowling as well. 245 against a team like Pakistan and on that wicket with the dew is not easy to defend, but I think the guys showed a lot of character," Kohli said after the one-wicket loss to Pakistan here.
