Appreciate Swanneh For The Genius He Is.
Bore off, seriously.
Select The #6 & #7
Michael Bevan, Chris Cairns, Michael Clarke, Hansie Cronje, AB De Villiers, MS Dhoni, Andrew Flintoff, Richard Hadlee, Michael Hussey, Imran Khan, Kapil Dev, Lance Klusener, Clive Lloyd, Kevin Pietersen, Shahid Afridi, Shaun Pollock, Andrew Symonds,
- Ponting, Richards, Lara and Lloyd all brilliant fieldsmen. Vital in ODIs imo.

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.

Barnes in this match revealed himself once more as one of the most remarkable bowlers that this country has ever produced. He has a positively wonderful command of the leg break.... His great height makes it difficult for the batsman to follow the flight of the ball. He is useful on every kind of wicket, whereas few bowlers of his pace are able to bowl on a sticky wicket. - JACK HOBBS, 'My Cricket Memories' (1924)
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.
BIG BASH TIPPING CHAMPION OF THE WORLD
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.
