Three choose themselves for me, but fielding is harder. Rhodes is probably the best I've seen, but that doesn't necessarily mean he'd be the best coach. It's probable he was just a supremely gifted athlete.
Batting: Geoffrey Boycott
Bowling: Dennis Lillee (I'm a pish seamer...)
Captaincy: Mike Brearley (would love to have spoken to DR Jardine too tho)
Fielding: Mike Young (not an international cricketer, but Australia's fielding went to pot when he got the heave-ho)
- As featured in The Independent.
"Predictably, the ending of his international career did not end the argument about Pietersen's merits, as an army of informed commentators and Piers Morgan weighed in to defend or attack him."
- The Guardian's Andrew Anthony
Batting: Sunil Gavaskar
Bowling: Dennis Lillee
Fielding: Jonty Rhodes
Captaincy: Saurav Ganguly or Steve Waugh

Batting :- G Vishwanath/Azharuddin
Bowling:- W Akram
Captaincy:- Dont need one.
Batting: Rahud Dravid
Bowling: Wasim Akram
Fielding: Jonty Rhodes
Captaincy: Imran Khan
Batting: Sir Geoff - Who else. The greatest batting mind in the world
Bowling: Ntini - I bowl very similar too him but I am a lazy so and so. We could exchange notes and he can show me his fitness regime and emphasise hard work
Fielding: Sir Geoff - Was a bad fielder early in his career who made himself through hardwork and practice a very good one. Jonty could not explain things as they came to easily and natural too him. "for this exercise you dive 4m, bounce up and throw the stumps down from your knees. OK Go!"
Captaincy: Brearley - We come from different backgrounds and generations and he would be able to look at things from a alternative POV and help me to think about different aspects of the game.

I'm suprised so many people have ignored the current coaches and gone for the best players, no offence meant to the guy, but i don't think Kallis would give the best batting advice.
Batting: Tendulkar: No explanation needed
Bowling: Warne: It was between Warne and McGrath/Lilee, but McGrath would be like 'See that spot over there? I'll put a dime on that, and your job is to hit it 100 times in a row. I'm going for a beer, have fun." And Lilee would be, "See that fellow with the pads and the bat standing over there? Here's how you hit him thirty different ways without getting in trouble"
Fielding: Rhodes (hard choice): I agree that he was just an exceptionally gifted athlete, and not necessarily a great coach...but I don't know that for sure, so it has to go to him.
Captain: Imran Khan (easy choice): No explanation needed
I wouldn't want to be coached by a batsman or a fielder who was naturally gifted, whereas with a bowler I think its different and a naturally gifted bowler would work, though I can't really explain why.
Batting: Geoff Boycott, despite not being the biggest fan of the guy or his commentary.
Fast Bowling: Holding or Imran (Tough to choose, they both look like they would teach very well)
Spin bowling: Warne seeing as I'm a leg spinner and I've never seen a leg spinner even come close to him.
Fielding: Sachin. He's remarkably good in the field (and often goes unnoticed) yet not as naturally gifted a fielder such as a Symonds or Jonty or Yuvraj or Ponting or whomever. I feel he'd teach the basics very well.
Captaincy: Imran or Taylor, tough choice.
