No need for "rest of the world"...a Pakistan vs India series would be enough.

with their fragile batting line up, always a nice chuckle for a monday morning. Then again pak fans would claim it to be a fix when they did lose ;)

My side would be (with respective batting averages in india)

Amla - 70
Cook - 52 - First innings/flat track bully ;)
Williamson - 35
KP - 44 Believe he's still available for selection
Root - 54
ABD (Wk/c) - 45
Stokes
Santner
Steyn -
The Fiz
Hareth

Tempted to also add Darren Bravo - averages 50 and has got a fair few runs against india in india.
Warner's misses out as he's struggled in india

the question pertains to "Indian" conditions, does it not? If so, the Pakistani batting lineup is far better than any other non-Indian lineup. This isn't a "dig" at anyone else...it's fact! Look at their UAE scores, and also look at the fact that they chased 300+ vs SL, in SL.

So, the best "world XI" to face India, in India, is Pakistan. Younis Khan, Misbah, Shafiq, Sarfraz (even Azhar Ali!!) have been dismantling spinners, in these conditions....surely no more compelling a battle than to see them face up to Ashwin?

Slightly off topic but I'm i assume Pakistan arent due (or likely) to play a proper series against India (in India) anytime soon?

If playing against India, you have to have Pakis in the squad  :D
Younis Khan, Amir, Sarfraz Ahmed will be definite pick.
