Karnataka booked their spot in the summit clash of the Ranji Trophy after the final day of their semifinal match against Punjab was washed out on Wednesday.

Karnataka, who entered the final by the virtue of first innings lead, will take on Maharashtra at Hyderabad from January 29.

The match was called off by the umpires without a ball being bowled on the fifth day due to persistent rain. The first day of the match was also wiped out.

Karnataka, who were at 447 for five in reply to Punjab’s first innings total of 270, went through to their first Ranji final in four seasons.
