Kolkata: Railways put up an all-round performance to down Bengal by five wickets in a low-scoring match and set up a Vijay Hazare Trophy final with Karnataka at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata on Friday.

Bengal's inept batting coupled with the defensive strategy to shave off the green top on the eve of the match brought the home team's downfall as they were bundled out for a paltry 185 in 47.4 overs.

In reply, Railways openers feasted on the Bengal attack to put on a 109-run partnership with Amit Paunikar scoring 83 (86 balls; 14x4) before Ashok Dinda made the first breakthrough in the 22nd over.
