Karnataka, Maharashtra, Haryana and Services booked their place in the last four stage of the competition after prevailing in closely-fought encounters at the quarter-final stage and will be looking to against bring their A game to the table as they aim to secure the traditional holy grail in Indian kabaddi.

In the first semi-final, Sukesh Hegde will lead his well-balanced Haryana side against Maharashtra that possesses players like Rishank Devadiga, Nitin Madane, Sachin Shingade and Girish Ernak in their ranks. So it will be a battle between Karnataka's raiders and Maharashtra's defence.

In the second semi-final the mighty Haryana led by the iconic Anup Kumar will seek an improved show against defending champions Services than what his troops managed against Rajasthan side that came pretty close to knocking them out. This clash will see the competition's two most well-rounded teams go head to head and a very tight encounter that's likely to go the distance is expected.

The final will be played an hour after the two semi-finals.
