As the Kabaddi World Cup enters the business end, teams are trying hard to earn a spot in the semi-finals. Six teams will try and keep their quest to enter the final four of the tournament. In the first match of the day, Thailand take on the United States of America in a must win situation. Iran has already qualified from this group and there is a tough fight for the second spot between Thailand and Japan. In the second game, South Korea, who have already qualified for semis, lock horns with England, who can only qualify by winning their remaining matches and hope India loses their remaining matches. The last match will be between Japan and Kenya. Japan need to win this match to keep their hopes alive while Kenya will look to spoil Japan’s party which will in-turn help Thailand.
