Sixth seeded India now play Italy for the sixth to eighth placing.

Despite the loss, Indian national coach Cyrus Poncha was pleased with his team's performance.

"Overall, it's a good show by our boys. Obviously, on world rankings, the Australian team was higher than ours – but we gave a great fight.”

"We've got a young team, with an average age of 22 – so when you look at the big teams Egypt, England, Australia and France, we should get the title in two years time," he said.

"Saurav played a really good game and put David under pressure," explained Australian team manager Byron Davis.

"But David fought hard to come back and win the match. To get that win was great - that put the pressure on them.”

Cameron then did what he needed to do and pulled us through. We're really glad to be in the semi-finals and look forward to playing England on the glass court," he said.
