Janneke Schopman’s side have had a great run in the tournament, winning all five of their games at league level to top the table. In fact, India played their last game of the league stage against their semi-final opponents and won 5–0.

This will be the third meeting between India and South Korea, after the two sides faced each other in the pool stage of the Hangzhou Asian Games last month, in a match that ended in a 1-1 draw.

South Korea, in the league stage, won two games (against China and Thailand) and managed a draw against Malaysia, to go along with losses to India and Japan in the league stage of the tournament.

India will be full of confidence, especially with the variety of ways they have found to win. They ran out comfortable winners against Thailand, Malaysia and Korea in the league stage, but both Japan and China were up for the challenge.

Against Japan, India had to push for a win and found it in the fourth quarter through Sangeeta Kumari, who has been a revelation on home turf. Earlier against China, India went 2-0 up in the first but came under pressure late on from the Asian Games gold medallists, and although they conceded a loss, the defense held firm to win 2-1.

Ahead of India’s semi-final against Korea, Japan and China will meet in the first semi-final, and we’ll have all the live updates from Ranchi this evening.
