India will look to inch closer to a semi-final berth with a win against Argentina on Saturday

But the hosts bounced back in the tournament, defeating Australia and Bangladesh with huge margins and are currently placed second in the group behind South Korea. The hosts will now look to top the Pool by defeating Argentina.

Unbeaten South Korea are sitting atop the Pool with 15 points while India have 11 points from their three matches.

Speaking on their preparations for the match, home skipper Anup Kumar said: "We have prepared well for the match. We had good 2-3 days to prepare our-self for the match."

Asked about any special strategy to tackle the South American nation, he said: "We are concentrating on our game, we have a good defence and tackle and are sharpening our skills. We will play our natural game."

The Indian defenders will have to be wary of the Argentine raiders as they have performed quite well in their games against Australia and South Korea.
