The first match of the fourth day of the XI FIP World Polo Championship had Chile playing against India. While the match started out seemingly equal, however very soon Chile tightened their reins and made the game their own. As the game began it appeared that India might just redeem themselves as they lead the first chukka with a score of 1-0, but it didn't take Chile long to respond to India's lead as they led by 3-1 in the third chukka. However what followed was very reminiscent of India's first defeat as Chile played an imposing game ending the match with a score of 11-2 in their favor.
The second Pool B match was between New Zealand and England. Both teams played with vigour. The game saw both the teams progressing simultaneously until the halftime mark whereon New Zealand inched towards its victory by gaining a 3 goal lead. After an impressive game by either teams the final score totaled to 11-8 in New Zealand's favor.
