    If you could get some coaching ... who would you get it from?

    If you all had the opportunity to get some coaching in batting, bowling, fielding and captaincy, which international cricketer would you get it from? It can be anyone from the past or present. Remember, just because they are the most talented doesn't mean they would be the best coach. No one would want batting technique tips from Sehwag. I can imagine certain pace demons like Shoaib Akhtar not being as approachable as say a Andrew Flintoff or Rahul Dravid. The fact that Chappell is the only national coach right now who is an all-time great cricketer shows that it's not just about cricketing ability. So, who would you choose?

    Batting:
    Bowling:
    Fielding:
    Captaincy:
