Bangalore: Defending champions Karnataka yesterday crashed out of the Vizay Hazare Trophy one-day tournament despite registering a massive 207-run win over Jammu and Kashmir in their final Group ‘B’ match in Bangalore on Friday.

Riding on Chidhambaram Gautam’s unbeaten 109 off 102 balls, Karnataka piled on an imposing 349-5 after being put into bat and then bowled out J&K for 142 in just 27.3 overs at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium.

Karnataka ended third in their group with 16 points from six matches (winning four and losing two matches), behind Jharkhand and Gujarat — both on 20 points. Only two top teams qualify for the knock-out round. J&K ended at the bottom of the seven-team group after losing all their six matches.
