Yangon: Himmat Rai and Ajeetesh Sandhu were the best among Indians with cards of two-under 70 but that was only good enough for tied 42nd place as the Zaykabar Myanmar Open got underway on Thursday.

Rahil Gangjee, Sujjan Singh and Vinod Kumar opened with one-under 71 each in tied 64th place, while Shankar Das carded 72 and Chiragh Kumar (76) was in danger of missing the cut unless he brings home a very low card in the second round.

Thai duo Kiradech Aphibarnrat and Chapchai Nirat went deep with eight-under 64 each and shared the lead on the opening day of the historic 10th season of the Asian Tour.
