Japan qualified for the semifinals after beating Poland.

Australia snapped their two match losing streak at the Kabaddi World Cup in Ahmedabad after getting the better of Argentina 68-45 while Japan beat Poland 33-22 in the first contest of the evening to qualify for the semifinals.

For Australia, the defensive issues remained the biggest problem so far into the extravaganza. And that changed on Wednesday with Jasvir Singh doing the job with 11 tackle points to his name. On the other side of the court, Kuldeep Singh did the job with the attack and picked up a cumulative 14 points including 12 raid points. The win took Australia above Argentina but still have much to do if they are to move to the next stage of the event.
