  • 22:19 (IST)

    Another emphatic result for India winning the tie pretty easily in the end. A yawning difference of 24 points reiterates their dominance. Pakistan will be undoubtedly unhappy despite having few big names coming into their line up they last by a bigger margin compared to their previous fixture.

    India with three wins are into the last four. Tomorrow they will play Kenya, do join us for that, until then it is goodbye from us.

  • Iran qualify for semi-finals!

    What a thriller! Iran hold their nerve to edge South Korea 31-27 to becoem first team to qualify for the semi-final. The first real close encounter of the tournament and it was worth the wait

  • Iran edging exciting contest

    Meanwhile a cracking contest going on between South Korea and Ira. Iran leading 26-25 with just two minutes to go

  • Srinivas Reddy tinkers with the team again. But perhaps he has the best team out on form. Rishank Devadiga's 13 points in the last game cannot be ignored, so does Rohit Kumar's performance in India's win over Pakistan earlier in the competition. The biggest surprise though comes at left corner where Girish Ernak gets the nod over Surender Nada. Reddy has decided to ignore his partnership with Mohit Chhillar and opted for the more in-form Ernak. 

    In defence, Surjeet returns and Deepak Niwas Hooda keeps his place. Pardeep Narwal and Rahul Chaudhari provide excellent alternatives. India shuld have enough to see Pakistan off who haven't included Sajjad Shaukat and Muzammal Hussain.
