18:57 (IST)5 JAN 2018

In the end, Rishank brought all his experience into play in the final raid, the DO OR DIE raid and picked an important running hand touch to help Maharashtra seal a spot in the finals! What a game!

18:56 (IST)5 JAN 2018

What an encounter this has been. Maharashtra ran away with the lead in the first half but Karnataka came out all guns blazing in the second half to tie scores with just under five minutes left in the game. 

18:55 (IST)5 JAN 2018

DO OR DIE for Maharashtra! He scores with a touch on the right corner!

Karnataka call in for a final minute time-out.

18:50 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Prashant Rai just walks along the half line, Karnataka playing with time here. 

18:49 (IST)5 JAN 2018

FIrst defence and now a SUPER RAID for Sukesh Hegde! Gets two touch points and a bonus point! 

What a match Sukesh is having!

18:48 (IST)5 JAN 2018

WOW! What a stunning effort from Sukesh Hegde! Rishank ran towards him at pace, he put in a double thigh hold and pinned him down!

Prashant Rai picks up a bonus point!

18:47 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Rishank Devadiga in for the DO OR DIE raid.

Jeeva Kumar has been shown the green card for arguing against the umpire's decision. 

18:46 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Karnataka down to just three men. 

18:45 (IST)5 JAN 2018

The Maharashtra defence envelope over Prapanjan! Big blow from Karnataka!

18:45 (IST)5 JAN 2018

One technical point in favour of Karnataka!

18:45 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Schoolboy error from Shabeer! Jogs back into the court without a point but that was a DO OR DIE and he has to go out.

18:44 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Rishank picks up one point! Looked like a super raid to the naked eye, but it's just one point. 

18:43 (IST)5 JAN 2018

DO OR DIE raid for Nilesh and he perishes!

Excellent presence of mind from the Karnataka defenders as Nilesh steps into the lobbies without a touch but the defenders go nowhere near him. 

18:42 (IST)5 JAN 2018

What strength from Prapanjan! Powers his way through a dash from Vishnu Landge to collect another point. 

18:41 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Time-out has been called for by the teams. 

Ten minutes left on the clock and the lead is four points in favour of Maharashtra. 

18:40 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Prapanjan extracts revenge! Bonus plus touch point for the lanky raider!

18:40 (IST)5 JAN 2018

RIshank Devadiga continues to motor along with points! One more point for the skipper!

18:38 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Rishank picks another point! Gets a running hand touch on Darshan. 

18:37 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Prapanjan continues to have a good game! Wards off the challenge from the defender and dives back into his own half. 

18:36 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Rishank claims a point on a Karnataka defender and he has been awarded the point! 

But he's been given a green card for excessive appealing. 

18:35 (IST)5 JAN 2018

ALL-OUT on Maharashtra! 

A little war of words on the mat but the points have been awarded to Karnataka. What a comeback this has been in the second half from Karnataka!

18:34 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Shabeer gets a touch on the right corner and now just the one man left on the mat for Maharashtra!

18:33 (IST)5 JAN 2018

The Karnataka defence now comes into play! Nitin Madane has been sent off to the bench!

18:33 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Prapanjan strikes yet again! What celebrations! Gets a toe touch on Rishank Devadiga and scoots away into his own half!

18:32 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Sachin Shingade has now been introduced into the game for the first time from Maharashtra!

18:32 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Now Shabeer strikes! Vishnu Landge comes in with the high block, Shabeer takes him along beyond the half-line. 

18:31 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Oh no! Darshan goes it with an unwanted ankle hold which was very weak and Nitin Madane easily made his way away from that hold. 

18:30 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Prashant Rai strikes first blood in the second half with an important two-point raid! Good start for Karnataka!

18:29 (IST)5 JAN 2018

The second half has commenced!

18:28 (IST)5 JAN 2018

An exciting second-half awaits! Can Karnataka make a comeback or will Maharashtra continue to assert their dominance? Stay tuned!

18:27 (IST)5 JAN 2018

With the scoreline reading 22-11 in favour of Maharashtra at half-time, Karnataka will have a lot to ponder upon if they plan to make a comeback in the second half. 

The raiding and defence department has worked in cohesion for the team from the North while Karnataka's woes have been compounded with Shabeer Bapu's inefficiency to pick points at pace although he has been thrust to go in for a majority of the raids. 

18:25 (IST)5 JAN 2018

The whistle has been blown to signal half-time and Maharashtra has scored exactly double of Karnataka's score with the scoreline reading 22-11.

18:24 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Jeeva Kumar screams his lungs out as he throws Rishank Devadiga off the court! Frustration showing?

18:23 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Shabeer finally scores a point after a series of empty raids with a bonus. 

18:22 (IST)5 JAN 2018

The lead has now swelled to 22-9 in favour of Maharashtra with just a little more than a minute left on the clock. 

18:22 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Second ALL-OUT on Karnataka! Poor poor defending or should I say, excellent raiding from Nilesh?

Goes in deep on the right corner, evades the diving ankle hold and brushes off the dash from the left chain to collect three points to his total and five total points for Maharashtra!

18:20 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Green Card has been shown to Vikas Kale. 

18:19 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Karnataka down to just three men on the mat.
