Karnataka have extended their lead to 176 runs now with Karun Nair completing his 150. However, the Ranji Trophy 2013-14 semi-final at Mohali has been marred with rain and bad light. The umpires have taken the players off the field again.
Karnataka started the day slowly as there were overcast conditions and they were trying to see off a testing period. However, once both batsmen settled in, they were more fluent and Verma gradually moved to his ton.
However, the umpires later called bad light as it only became more overcast.
Players came back on after lunch, and Nair completed his 150. However, it remained overcast and when they felt it was time, they left.
Punjab 270 trail Karnataka 446 for 5 (Karun Nair 150*, Amit Verma 114*; Harbhajan Singh 2 for 98) by 176 runs.
