Back to the thread topic, don't know about easily but Tendulkar, Lara, Dravid, Kallis Waugh, Ponting, Sangakkara and Inzamam would have done fine against 80s fast bowlers - all would have averaged above or close to 50 overall...
"I want to raise my hand and say one thing. Those who complain about my love for the game or commitment to the game are clueless. These are the only 2 areas where I give myself 100 out of 100."
- Sachin Tendulkar, as told in an interview published in Bengali newspaper Anandabazar Patrika after his 100th International century (translated by weldone)
the De Silva of the latter half of his career too

Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta
Ponting, with his LBW issues early on? He'd be chewed up in no time with a Marshall in cutter.
Kallis, Dravid, Tendulkar, Lara.
Ponting at his best didn't have an LBW problem.
Bowlers just thought he did. And then got hammered when he kept putting it through mid-on for four.

Not so sure about that, during his first incarnation when the great Windies quicks were still good but a fading force, he struggled mightily and was promptly moved down the order because of this. Have always thought that more bowlers like that during his golden period in the early noughties might have sorted him out. He's a great but goes hard early and has had technical issues but for a long time there seemed to be a dearth of great bowlers allied with a plethora of flat tracks.
Kallis and Tendulkar would be technically equipped to deal with them pretty well you'd think.
Perhaps so but I doubt it would have been by getting him out LBW.
Better question would be how batting greats of 70s and 80s would have done against bowling of 90s. Bowling of 90s had everything, from terrifying pace, swing (reverse or conventional), wrist spin or finger spin, doosras and carom balls, it had everything. IMO the golden age of bowling.

Which bowlers of the 1962-1974 period would you expect to be good wicket keepers on the uncovered English wickets of the pre-Test era in the mid 1800s?
