Scorecard and ball-by-ball details

Karnataka went through to their first Ranji final in four seasons after the last day of their semi-final against Punjab was washed out in Mohali. Karnataka had already taken a commanding lead by stumps on the fourth day, virtually extinguishing Punjab's chances. A dull fifth day had been in store, with Karnataka looking to bat out time and Punjab needing a miracle, but the persistent rain wiped out any chance of play.
