Scorecard
Assam regained some pride with a powerful batting display led by a century from Gokul Sharma to draw the first quarter-final in Indore. However, Karnataka's march into the semi-final was almost academic after they had gained a massive first-innings lead, which had helped them set an improbable target of 683.
Assam would have wanted significant improvement from their 185 all out in the first innings. And they got it as the top order produced the team's best second-innings display in over six years - 338 for 4, at a run-rate of nearly four.
Gokul was the only one to convert a start into three-figures - his 127 came off 191 balls and had 19 fours - but opener Pallavkumar Das' rapid half-century had set up a platform and KB Arun Karthik's 94 off 138 balls had kept up the momentum.
Assam hit 51 boundaries in the 88 overs, although only 54 was bowled by Karnataka's frontline bowlers. Shreyas Gopal, the legspinning-allrounder known more for his batting, did the bulk of the work but his 25 overs cost 109 runs.
