Well you dont want two all rounders. Unless you dont have 3 fast bowlers better than Cairns (i assume here that Kapil is the superior all rounder), Kapil + Cairns doesnt make much sense. I mean id take one with Kallis anyway because you can build a batting line up around him.

Anyway the rest of the line up is also very important. For an example if you are the mid/late 00s Sri Lanka with Dilshan, Sangakkara, Mahela, SummerV, mathews etc plus no fast bowlers, id go for the first option

Well Green is unproven as a test player despite all the potential and i personally prefer Neser or Pattinson over Starc these days anyway so its the second option where id take Kapil as a genuine bowling option. Put Cummins there over Starc and then it gets interesting

Who are the other 9 players?

My eyes lit up when you offered me the absolute h4x lower middle order of Kapil and Cairns coupled with one of them being 5th bowler, whereas Kallis and Hoggard is a downgrade on the combination South Africa got in real life, and that combination wasn't always enough to cover the couple of total spuds South Africa always seemed to have clinging to the side.

I want Kallis so for current NZ I'll put him in for CdG, adjust batting order accordingly and Hoggard can carry drinks.

If the team's batting is good and the bowling is bad, the first option and vice versa.

It's Kallis and Hoggard and it isn't something that requires much more thought than that
