We can win without Sehwag and Zaheer

India will truly miss Virender Sehwag and Zaheer Khan in September tri-series in Sri Lanka but the presence of match-winners and the balance of the team still make them the tournament favorite, said Harbhajan Singh.

Talking to reporters after presentation the Compaq Cup 2009, which will be given to the winner of the tri-series also features New Zealand, Harbhajan accepted it would not be easy to replace players like Zaheer and Sehwag but feel the team could still pull it off.

"Sehwag is a key player. Any team in the world would miss a player like him. But now that he would not be playing, we would have to do well without him," Harbhajan said.

He said the return of experienced persons Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid would offset Sehwag's loss.

"We are a strong team and it's a balanced side. Besides, we have a number of match-winning players in the ODI ranks. We have the youngsters and then you have skilled players like Dravid, Tendulkar and Yuvraj Singh. If we play to our probable, we would return with this lovely trophy," he said after presentation world's first digital sports trophy.

Like Sehwag, Zaheer too undergo a shoulder surgery which ruled him out of the tri-series and the following Champions Trophy but Harbhajan seemed to have enough trust on other pacers to pull it off.

A familiar spike in Australian flesh, Harbhajan Singh offered no understanding to Ricky Ponting and his grief-stricken team-mates on their Ashes disaster and said they are still missing Shane Warne and Glenn McGrath.

As expected, Harbhajan looked rather amused by Australia's Ashes defeat as he went on to highlight the positive implications of England's Ashes triumph.

"Congratulations," was his spontaneous response when he was told about Australia's defeat and was asked to comment on.
