...

25' India 45-15 Argentina; Nahuel Lopez with a brilliant raid wins two points for Argentina. The crowd goes crazy, but it isn't because of the raid by Lopez, but because Rahul Chaudhari is on the mat! He has been off-colour in this tournament so far, though.

...

India win the toss and Anup Kumar asks Argentina to raid!

The Indian team is on the mat. So are their opponents Argentina. Just moments to go. Stay tuned!

...

We are 30 minutes away from the start of the match. Do read our preview of the match in the meantime to have a better idea of how the tie will shape up.

...

India's poor start to the campaign seems a long time ago as they demolished the ghosts of that 32-34 loss to South Korea on opening day with back to back victories over Australia and Bangladesh. The Aussies were demolished 52-20 before they upped another gear against neighbours Bangladesh. The Asian nation were handed a 37-point defeat as India came out on top with an emphatic 57-20 scoreline.

...

Each of Argentina's matches have been extremely high-scoring. They started with a 42-68 loss to Korea before scoring 40+ points again in a 45-68 loss to Australia. Their last match was against high-flying England, where they meekly surrendered 28-68.

...

World Cup debutants Argentina, however, lie on the opposite side of the spectrum having lost all three matches to find themselves at the foot of the table and out of contention for a semi-final spot.

...

 This is the host nation's penultimate game of the group stage. They have lost 1 and won the other 2 matches and sit in second spot in Group A with 11 points.
