Jaipur, Feb 4 (PTI) Opener Virendra Sehwag andall-rounder Yusuf Pathan would be the trump cards for TeamIndia in the forthcoming World Cup, feels former cricketerRoger Binny.

"We have a balanced side and the home conditions andadvantage would also suit us but I feel that the swashbucklingopener Virendra Sehwag and Yusuf Pathan might be the trumpcards for the team India," Binny told reporters during afunction at the RCA academy where the World Cup trophy wasdisplayed.

"A left arm spinner could have been an added advantagebut still the Indian batting has the fire power to bring theworld cup back to us.

"We bat low down till eight and even the number ninebatsman Habhajan Singh can hit some lusty blows. We have thecapability of adding more than 100 runs in last 10 overs,"said Binny, who had played a crucial role in India''s 1983historic World Cup victory by taking 18 wickets.

Not reading much into the fact that skipper MS Dhoni isthe lone wicket keeper in the squad, Binny said that theIndian skipper and the think tank must have given it a properthought.

"Dhoni himself is an experienced guy and knows hislimitations and also the Indian think tank perhaps thoughtthat he was capable of taking on the load of keeping theentire World Cup," said Binny, who took 47 wickets in 27 Testsand scalped 77 batsmen in 72 ODIs.
