Number seven is a bit harder, I guess. I'll go with Lance Klusener.
Need a good bat at No.7 because of the long tail.
Kallis and Waugh can share the 5th bowler duties. And Waugh won't crack under pressure when chasing a big total.

“I'm writing a book on magic”, I explain, and I'm asked, “Real magic?” By real magic people mean miracles, thaumaturgical acts, and supernatural powers. “No”, I answer: “Conjuring tricks, not real magic”. Real magic, in other words, refers to the magic that is not real, while the magic that is real, that can actually be done, is not real magic.”
― Lee Siegel, 'Net of Magic: Wonders and Deceptions in India'
Not sold on the batting order of 9,10,11.
Bevan at 6 and 7 is a bit difficult but I'll go for Dev.

Probably switch McGrath and Garner
Kapil Dec averaged 27 with the bat. I don't don't think that this good enough considering who follows at 8-9-10-11.
Also, I must say at this stage that Richard Hadlee (or even Shaun Pollock) fell into the category of bleeding obvious with respect to that No.8 spot. Too late to go back now though.

Also need to be a proper bowler seeing as Sachin looks to be the best option in the top 6...

Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.
Also, I'd like to leave the destructive hitting to Richards and Lara. With a line-up of decent batsman after them they are more free to 'let loose'. With only Bevan and Dev to follow they have no choice but to be inhibited.
