April 1, 2014: After the fourth day of the 4th Hockey India Junior Men National Championship 2014 (Division A) being played in Chennai, four semi-finalists are yet to be known. Haryana and Uttar Pradesh are in race for a place in final four from Pool C, while it would be either Tamil Nadu or Punjab from Pool A.
The hosts Tamil Nadu will play their last league match against Punjab in Pool A, which will be decider for semi finals place, as Chandigarh failed to show up. Haryana and Uttar Pradesh, both having four points from two outings in Pool C, will also play their last league matches against Jharkhand and MPHA respectively for a place in knock out stage. From Pool B, Odisha is likely to qualify for semis but Karnataka and Himachal Pradesh also have a chance depending on various permutation and combinations, while SAI and Hockey Bhopal will fight out on Thursday for the semi finals spot from Pool D.
