The seam trio of Shami Ahmed, Veer Pratap Singh and Laxmi Shukla shared eight wickets among them as defending champions Bengal crushed Karnataka by 10 wickets to set up a semifinal clash with Delhi in the National one-day championship for the Vijay Hazare Trophy here on Thursday.

Electing to field after winning the toss in the third quarterfinal, Bengal skittled out Karnataka for a paltry 127 runs in 32.1 overs as Shami (3-32), Veer Pratap (3-40) and Shukla (2-20) ripped through their batting line-up at the Port Trust Diamond Jubilee Stadium.

The Bengal openers, Shreevats Goswami and Wriddhiman Saha, knocked off the target in 28.3 overs to register an emphatic victory.


Goswami struck 10 fours and two sixes in his 79-ball 70 not out while Saha played an ably ally with an unbeaten 52  off 93 balls.
