They are not as perturbed as they used to be in earlier days. It gives them a lot of confidence to come into the International set-up," <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/dinesh-karthik/">Dinesh Karthik</a> said ahead of the series opener. <p></p> <p></p>"I'm sure these are exciting times for the young boys. I'm very confident that they will make best use of the chances given to them. It's a great opportunity for all the young boys coming in," he added. <p></p> <p></p>In the past year, India have made many a change in the limited-overs format, giving an opportunity to the youngsters. The results, however, remained the same: India continued their domination. <p></p> <p></p><b> We are a very strong side </b> <p></p> <p></p>"We are trying to assess how each one reacts to different situations. These are great platform for a lot of young guys to come in and showcase their talents. As senior players, we just try and help these young guys as much as possible. <p></p> <p></p>The Indian team has reached a stage where no matter which team we are playing, we are a very strong side and we are trying to achieve some good thing on the field every time," he added. <p></p> <p></p>Of late Karthik has been batting at No. 4. Commenting on the same he said he is open to bat at any position. <p></p> <p></p>"Depending on the situations and number of overs, I might go up and down a little bit but I'm seeing myself starting at number four for sure," he said. <p></p> <p></p>The last time India played a T20I at Barabati Stadium, Cuttack, they performed badly by getting all-out for 92 against South Africa. However, Karthik is looking forward to play here and expecting a packed stadium. <p></p> <p></p>"This a beautiful stadium to play and you generally get a packed atmosphere. It's a great venue to play cricket and we are looking forward to it. <p></p> <p></p>"We are the home team. When you play in India you have a lot of advantage."
