Since only the top eight teams will rub shoulders at the HWL Final Round, the top four teams from London and Johannesburg will advance, but if the host India fail to qualify on merit, only seven top teams from both HWL Semifinal rounds will advance based on the International Hockey Federation's (FIH) current rankings. Malaysia doubled the advantage via Tengku Tajuddin with another penalty corner in the 20th minute.

The loss to Malaysia, their second in two months, would be hard to digest for Roelant Oltmans' men who have been trying hard to regain their place in the elite league of world hockey.

In the first semi-final, Argentina will face off Malaysia on Saturday and England will lock horns with Netherlands in the other semi-final on the same day.

Malaysia's Razie Rahim scored all three goals for their team, while the two Indian goals were scored by Ramandeep Singh.

On the other hand, Argentina has had a dream run and has been undefeated in the competition so far. A minute later, Malaysia doubled their lead as Tengku neatly deflected in from their fourth penalty corner.

"Today we were in control throughout the first half but mentally took our foot off the pedal when we went 3-0 up and conceding a goal caused some anxious moments but happy to have limited our opponents to just one goal".
