Experienced Ravindra Jadeja is there. What does another left-arm spinner Akshar Patel need? Seeing the 15-member Indian team for the T20 World Cup, this question must have come to many people's minds. The answer must have been received in the semi-final match against England tomorrow.

In reply to India's 171, England captain Jos Buttler got the team off to an explosive start, just as Akshar came in with a match-turning spell. His first victim was Buttler who scored 23 off 15 balls, the second was Jonny Bairstow, another veteran of England's batting.

England drop left-armer Moeen Ali to three to counter-attack in the left-arm spinner's first spell in Akshar. But that Moin also stopped because of Akshar. England's match ended there. The rest was formality. Akshar eventually bowled 4 overs, a first for him in a match in this World Cup. He gave only 23 runs, 3 wickets. Matchesarao characters as expected.

Indian selector Ajit Agarkar must be smiling behind his back. You have seen the wide smile on the face of captain Rohit Sharma yesterday. Two of them took the risk of taking four spinners in the World Cup team mainly for yesterday's semi-final match.

India already knew that if they made it to the semi-finals of the World Cup, they would be playing in Guyana, one of the most spin-friendly wickets in the Caribbean. The team has arranged the team accordingly. Akshar got a chance as an additional spinner, who helped India reach the final in Barbados.

It goes without saying that the ICC has scheduled the World Cup this way to favor India. Sanjay Manjrekar, the former cricketer of the country, told livecricketbd, "Clean facilities have been given." Rohit has to accept this. He can't say it doesn't make their job easier. India must have arranged their team with this in mind.

India's knock out performance on the World Cup stage is not good. That has also been kept in mind in this case, this former Indian cricketer gave a glimpse, 'Semi-final and final were India's problems. When you know your game is in Guyana, you put four spinners in the team. This will be a reason. 

Like Manjrekar, former English captain Michael Vaughan also criticized openly. "It's their (India) tournament," he clarified on the Club Prairie Fire podcast. They are playing wherever they want. They know where their semi-final match will be. They are playing every match in the morning so that the Indian audience can watch the game on TV at night.”

Keeping in mind the audience and financial aspect of India's match, Vaughn said the next thing, 'I understand. Money matters in world cricket. But it would have been understandable if it was a bilateral series. But when you play the World Cup, the ICC should be more transparent with other teams. Because of India, money comes into cricket, so it cannot get this advantage. As I said, I would understand if this happened in a bilateral series. But in the World Cup you cannot show sympathy, favoritism towards one team. This World Cup is completely arranged for India.

Not only that, another English former cricketer David Lloyd is surprised to see India and Pakistan match in the group stage of every ICC tournament. In his view it is a kind of 'fixing'. Which team will play in which group of Football World Cup, Euro, is decided through draw. Cricket World Cup is not like that. Therefore, ICC tries to hold India-Pakistan, England-Australia matches in every World Cup.

Criticizing this method, popular commentator Lloyd said on Talk Sports, 'We talk about match fixing in cricket. It is a big tournament fixing. The game is the stage. You can't fix it. It is nothing. We fix many other things. How many things have been decided in advance (schedule, venue) in this World Cup. You are trying to manipulate, it is not right.'

South Africa are in the final? Who knew?

The four people in a Cape Town barbershop didn't betray any sign of knowing. Neither did a group of around 20 roadworkers down the road contemplating a large opening where the pavement might have been. Nobody behind the counter at a buzzing cafe, nor the clientele, further along the drag were any the wiser.

The staff at an exercise center didn't be aware, perhaps because all of the seven televisions in the place were tuned to reruns of the previous night's matches in the men's European football championships.

Had you not known better, you would have thought South Africa's men's team hadn't reached the final of a World Cup, the T20 version, for the first time very few hours earlier.

If any of those working out in the exercise center as Thursday morning turned towards afternoon knew, they didn't let on. The vast majority of them, anyway. Among the latter was Herschelle Gibbs, who held a series of frenetic conversations that should be what nuclear reactions made tissue would seem to be.

It was in the midst of these exchanges that Gibbs' eyes caught those of someone he has known since his playing days. The two men stared silently at each other across the exercise center floor, and for some strange reason each held up an index finger. The expression on both of their faces was that of someone who had been kissed for the first time.

Gibbs admitted to livecricketbd that he was "happy, excited and apprehensive all at the same time; it feels exquisite". He noticed that, "I've always said that if South Africa reach a final they will win it." Indeed, Gibbs made that assertion on radio as of late as Wednesday, when he also said he trusted Saturday's final in Barbados would feature South Africa and India.

He was granted half that wish at 4.37am on Thursday, South Africa time, when Aiden Markram's team finished a nine-wicket thrashing of Afghanistan in their semifinal in Trinidad. Had Gibbs watched the game? "Nah. At the point when I checked the score Afghanistan were 23/5. There was no point, so I went back to sleep."

England and India met in the other semi, in Guyana, later on Thursday. Were India still Gibbs' favored opponents? It was agreed that "once the Indians get rolling they're difficult to stop", but also that while England have quality spinners in Adil Rashid, Liam Livingstone and Moeen Ali, "Kensington Oval doesn't turn".

While he was talking, a woman mature enough to be Gibbs' mother - he is 50 - approached and interrupted the discussion. "Excuse me," she said. Gibbs: "Yes madam?" She explained that she was struggling to adjust a nearby piece of weight training equipment. Might he at some point help?

Without another word Gibbs accompanied her to the machine, repositioned a cable that had lost its, set the weight to her desired level, watched her perform the exercise, and offered her tips on how to do so safely and optimally. Clearly ignorant regarding what his identity was, she thanked him. He smiled and got back to his conversation companion.

Gibbs properly earned his reputation as a hero cricketer who was never too far from inconvenience off the field. But, away from all that, he is saturated with basic human respectability. His greatest gift isn't that he played the game better compared to the vast majority on the planet, and doubtless would have done in any sport of his choosing. Instead it is that he is the most unfamous famous person you could meet. Welcome him once and the following time he sees you he treats you as a friend. At the point when you do see him again and you ask how he is his answer is invariably a booming, "Tremendous!"

His great manners were on display on the night of March 16 2007, the day he hit each ball of Dutch leg spinner Daan van Bunge's fourth over for six in a World Cup match in St Kitts. Gibbs stood dapperly at the counter of a beach bar, a veritable off-obligation James Bond. He purchased drinks for others and accepted drinks from others, all the while maintaining impeccable behavior, until at least 2am. Four hours later he stepped deliberately up a fairway on a nearby green, five-iron in hand.

Was David Miller's constitution that strong? Only more than 10 hours after the semifinal finished he beamed out of a screen at an online public interview wearing team traveling gear and looking at least as dapper as Gibbs did all those years ago. It was 8.30am in Trinidad. How much sleep had he had?

"Three or four hours," Miller said. "It's early, but that's standard. We've had some weird timings. Fortunately, we steamrolled them and finished the game earlier than anticipated, which was a decent outcome."

Complaints over the hectic timetable teams have had to keep to make it to the six Caribbean grounds that facilitated 36 of the 52 gathering and Very Eight games and will stage all three of the knockout matches have been rife.

"We haven't really spoken about it as such," Miller said. "There have been mumbles here and there, but if I told you exactly how our travel in the last several weeks has gone you would be stunned. So it's been a monumental effort from the management and players to get involved with where we are right at this point.

"It takes my breath away that it seemed like the tournament dragged on in the beginning, and then we played the Super Eights essentially back-to-back on different islands. It doesn't make sense. I think it might have been organized better. But it is what it is, and what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. We certainly are stronger for it."

South Africa's four gathering games were spread north of a dozen days, and the first three were played in Nassau District. Their three Super Eights matches were crammed into five days, and they had to go from Antigua to St Lucia and back to Antigua to play them.

But Miller was correct - South Africa were stronger for the experience. All that time on Nassau's nasty pitch prepared them well for a similar surface in the semifinal.

Did their unexpected status as finalists mean a more relaxed program leading into Saturday's decider? The question wasn't asked, nevermind answered. "Apologies, but we have to check out in seven minutes to catch the bus," the media manager said as she called a halt to proceedings.

Cricket is a major sport in South Africa, but far from the obsession it is in south Asia. Football is to South Africa what cricket is to India, despite the fact that the national football teams don't often get far on the world stage. The Springboks have kept rugby's profile high by winning a record four men's World Cups since claiming their first title in 1995.

Cricket hasn't helped itself by winning only two of their 11 men's knockout games at World Cups. But, win or lose but particularly would it be advisable for them they win, the game's place in the public consciousness will be elevated on Saturday. Maybe then people will be aware.
