Binny banking on extra pace to seal World Cup spot
Cut-throat competition is expected when it comes to making the final-15 for 2015 ICC World Cup and all-rounder Stuart Binny feels the extra pace he has gained of late makes his case stronger ahead of the all important selection early next month.
Binny has not made the most of his international opportunities, both with bat and ball in three Tests and six ODIs. The 30-year-old, however, remains confident of securing a World Cup berth. “I have actually gone up on my pace in the last 8-10 months. After entering international cricket, I realised I need to step up on the pace. I worked a bit in the gym and the run up is harder than last year. The results are showing. I have got a bit stronger in the legs. I was bowling consistent 125 kmph and I have added 3-4 kmph to that. Stronger legs have helped me run in harder than earlier,” said Binny.
