Karnataka qualified for the final of the Ranji Trophy 2013-14 season, wherein they will take on Maharashtra for the title.

Persistent rain did not allow play to start on the fifth and final day at the Punjab Cricket Association (PCA) Stadium in Mohali.

On the fourth day of the semi-final, Karnataka had almost sealed their spot in the final of the Ranji Trophy after only 36.1 overs of play was possible against Punjab.

Karnataka had consolidated their lead to 177 runs.

At stumps on fourth day, Karnataka were 447 for five in 146.1 overs after bad light stopped the proceedings.

The visitors scored 96 runs on the day without losing any further wickets as left-hander Amit Verma celebrated his return to the state side with an unbeaten knock of 114 runs while in-form Karun Nair reached 151.

Brief scores:

Punjab 270 trail Karnataka 447 for 5 (Karun Nair 151*, Amit Verma 114*; Harbhajan Singh 2 for 98) by 177 runs.
