It'd be a situation where you would play 5 bowlers. There are plenty of examples of allrounders who wouldn't make the team solely as a batsman but batted top 7 because they had enough batting talent and their bowling added balance to the team.
As I said, I personally prefer India with 7 batsman as I think its their strength, so I'd drop a bowler for Kapil Dev, but dropping Raina (which looked a lot more reasonable before the WI tour and day 5 of the Lord's test) for Kapil Dev would hardly be the worst move. It'd strengthen the often criticised Indian bowling line-up, and Dev is hardly a mug with the bat. You can't say Kapil Dev's batting is that much worse than Raina, Yuvraj, Pujara etc. who have played for this Indian team in recent years.

Every Pakistani would pick King Khan. We desperately need a leader who the players respect and admire and he can slap Big Butt without facing the threat of suspension. Plus he can bat and bowl and was a great captain.

Hadlee the obvious choice considering our bowling;
Chris Cairns and Glenn Turner other good shouts. If we weren't allowed to pick a superstar then Bruce Taylor would slot in nicely at eight and be our best bowler in all probability.

Would do 2 things, improve our bowling (quite a lot IMO) and relax our stupid stance on not picking fatties to allow Cosgrove to get a game instead of Darsh or someone equally undeserving.
Left arm all over the place
Woefully inadequate spinner no.19
Plus Merv just oozes charisma and our team could use some of that...

I'd take the Don obviously. Though I'm sure Ponting would insist on batting at 3, Clarke at 4 so he'd have to bat at 5

sk warne, if he can get a game ahead of Beer or Lyon.
Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?
With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

is probably on par with Hadlee, Morrison, Chatfield, Bracewell
the only question is who would you pick if you couldn't take him.
Would take Turner as our opening batting has been weak for sometime although Brendon may seek to turn that around.
