India, on Friday, qualified for the semifinals of the ongoing Asian U20 Men's Volleyball Championships in Riffa, Bahrain. The Indians defeated the hosts 3-1 in their 1st to 12th qualification round, to make their way into the final four.

India started off well against Bahrain pocketing the first two sets 25-22 and 25-19 respectively. However, with their campaign at the Asian U20 Championships on the line, the hosts bounced back.

Bahrain won the third set 28-26 and threatened to force India into a decider, but the men in blue maintained their composure to pocket a hard fought fourth set 26-24 to qualify for the semifinals with a 3-1 win.

Tanish Chaudhary and Harish Giri starred for India with 14 points each against Bahrain.

With this semifinal qualification, India is now just a win away from booking themselves a slot in the FIVB U-21 Men's World Championships Qualification rounds.
