Avantha Masters: Rahil Gangjee, Abhijit Chadha in top-10; Nirat, Wen Chong lead

Montgomerie, who has 31 European Tour titles and is considered the best player never to have won a Major, could have ended up at bottom of the heap had it not been for some withdrawals. Shiv Kapur (72) was among the prominent local favourites who would be missing from weekend action.

Greater Noida: Rahil Gangjee and Abhijit Chadha's consistency ensured India's presence in the top-10 but for the second successive day a Thai, Chapchai Nirat, figured among the leaders even as some prominent names missed the cut at the USD 2.3 million Avantha Masters golf tournament on Friday.

Nirat and China's Liang Wen Chong jointly held the top spot with totals of 12-under 132 after returning identical cards of six-under 66 for the second day running.

Gangjee (66) and Chadha (69) were tied for the seventh spot with aggregates of nine-under 135, three stokes off the pace. They shared the position with overnight leader Chinnarat Phadungsil of Thailand whose fortunes took a tumble as he turned in a rather disappointing 74 after setting the course ablaze with a sensational 61 yesterday.
