Hi Rasanga,
you may have a look at the 'improveProb' function from the Hmisc package. There you can compare the increase in prognostic power for several combinations of markers. You can create a ROC curve for a combination of markers by using the predicted risks eg. from a logistic regression model.

To compare ROC curves of competing markers you can use 'roc.area.test' from the 'clinfun' package or 'hanley' from gcl.
