Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi who believed in selection of players based on the pitch conditions

I have never believed in the horses-for-courses theory. Harbhajan Singh will get you wickets on a green top and Kapil Dev will get you wickets on a turner, because they are both good bowlers. A bad seamer will not get you wickets on a green top and a bad spinner will not get you wickets on a turner. I played four spinners because they happened to be the best bowlers around. I had no Kapil Dev, so playing a seamer just for the sake of balance was useless.
