The first day’s play of the Ranji Trophy 2013-14 semi-final between Punjab and Karnataka has been called off due to rain. Although the rain had relented for a while and play was expected to start at 14:00 IST, but the conditions did not improve and the umpires decided to resume tomorrow.


The toss did not take place and we will have to wait until tomorrow for play to start.  Punjab qualified for the semi-finals by beating Jammu and Kashmir at Baroda, whereas, Karnataka defeated Uttar Pradesh at Bangalore to make it through.


While Punjab have the likes of Yuvraj Singh, Harbhajan Singh, VRV Singh and Manpreet Gony in their side, Karnataka have the likes of Robin Uthappa, R Vinay Kumar and Abhimanyu Mithun to name a few.


Both teams are evenly matched and there is a lot to look forward to in this match.
