Just on this, I doubt that in an actual game Jhulan Goswami would be any good with bat (or with ball, but I suppose you've got a lot of bowlers...). I'd bat her below Lillee.
Jhulan Goswami has a bowling average againt her own gender of around 16 and has been clocked at over 120kph. Her batting is solid too. I don't see any problem having her bat at #9 and having a bowl ... particularly against her own gender. I see no difference to having Janette Brittain or Belinda Clark opening the batting or Sarah Taylor keeping to the pace of Marshall and Steyn. It's all a bit of hypothetical fun.
