This victory has given Karnataka six points. Chasing 358, Rajasthan were bundled out for 265 despite Pranay (114) and Dishant Yagnik (71 not out) chipping in with crucial runs.

Resuming on 42 for three, Rajasthan got off to a determined start with overnight batsmen -- Pranay and Tanveer-Ul-Haq -- adding 60 runs in the morning before Stuart Binny dismissed the latter for 19.

Tanveer's wicket triggered a mini collapse as Rajat Bhatia and Puneet Yadav fell inside the next two overs with the home team reeling at 116 for six.

However, Pranay, who went on to complete his second first-class century, along with Yagnik, fought back to keep the hosts' chances alive with a 98-run partnership for the fourth wicket.

But Pranay's dismissal off David Mathias' bowling put a check on Rajasthan's run rate and then they eventually got all out, even as Yagnik remained unbeaten at the other end.

Brief scores: Karnataka: 281 & 318 for five decl Rajasthan: 242 & 265 all out in 82 overs (Pranay Sharma 114, Dishant Yagnik 71 not out; David Mathias 3/53).
