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.

Fred Spofforth, 'The Demon Speaks'The figures Sir Home Hordon has shown me of what Grace did in matches against me, 37 innings, 1042 runs, 28.16 average, considerably less than his general average, hears out my theory that I never had any particular difficulty in getting him out. I clean bowled him seven times, ACM Croome says that WG told him that on any wicket he never knew when I should bowl him. This may have been due in part to my artfulness......
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.
NRL Tipping Champion 2014
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...
RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012
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.
