Insisting that his troubled days are a thing of past, mercurial Australian all-rounder Andrew Symonds today said he is looking for a fresh start in the Champions League Twenty20 scheduled from October 8.

Symonds is a crucial player for Indian Premier League champions Deccan Chargers, who will open their campaign against Somerset on October 10.

Symonds, who was sacked from the Australian team and stripped of a central contracts following repeated alcohol-related misdemeanors, said he is focused on doing well for Deccan Chargers.

"There is no impact. It is over. I am relaxed now. Coming back to Hyderabad and playing for Deccan Chargers is exciting," he told reporters today.

Talking about the Champions League, he said weather would be a major factor in deciding the matches.

"It depends on the weather. It will be interesting to see how it will be. Personally, I am prepared to be flexible for weather," Symonds said.

When pointed out that the inaugural edition of the IPL in India was not good for Deccan Chargers, who finished bottom of the table then, Symonds said he doesn't want to think about the past.
