i think in home conditions especially 5 bowlers is a good idea, even though the pacers don't take wickets the spinners do so anywhere with spin friendly conditions is BD's best chance of winning tests. i guess in pace friendly conditions there are more advantages of taking an 8th batsman since BD's pacers are basically ineffective no matter what and the spinners wicket-taking ability will be negated by conditions.
