With the T20 World Cup scheduled to be played in Australia next year and Rishabh pants Still calming down, Karthik feels he can still make a difference if given the opportunity. Finisher's role is something I've always enjoyed. If I have the opportunity, I would definitely like to prove myself again, Karthik told reporters here on Saturday.

The races came with Karthik arriving at bat at number 5 or 6 on most occasions.
I have not tried to do anything different and alter my game. I always wonder what the most difficult situation a player faces. It's winning games for your team, either for TN or my IPL team (Kolkata Knight Riders). So I always want to rescue my team in difficult situations using my experience and skill. Everyone tries to enter the side of India and I am no exception. I am trying very hard to be part of India. set up again, said Karthik.
For now, Karthik is focused on taking his form to the Ranji Trophy. Tamil Nadu will open his campaign against Karnataka in Dindigul on Monday. I have fun playing for TN. You will not have a more focused team than us at this time. We want to get to knockouts but we have to take one step at a time because we are in a very tough group. Karthik said.
Although TN lost to Karnataka in the finals of Vijay Hazare and Mushtaq Ali, Karthik had admirably led TN. However, he has chosen not to lead the side in Ranji.

With regard to the captaincy, I believe it is time for someone young and fresh to take charge ... Someone who can carry the TN cricket in the next three or four years, Karthik said.
