English duo Phillip Archer and Graeme Storm both shot three under par 69s to remain in strong contention in the Johnnie Walker Classic in India.

Archer had an up-and-down round with six birdies and three bogeys - while Storm defied illness to fire four birdies and one bogey.

The pair are in a three-way tie for fourth place, three strokes behind tournament leader Taichiro Kiyota.

Kiyota made four birdies and an eagle to earn a one-stroke lead.

Storm, 29, said: "I don't know how I got round there today because it's been so hot today and I hardly got any sleep last night.

"I've just done that on adrenaline, I think. I felt so bad and I didn't think I was going to play this morning but I got something off the physios and that seemed to help a little bit.

"I don't know whether it's the food or a bug that's going around because everyone seems to be getting a dose of it. I'm not sure what it is."

India's Jyoti Randhawa carded a four-under 68 to climb into joint second place with New Zealand's Mark Brown.

606: DEBATE

Brown said: "I've got a very good caddie here; I like the climate; it's nice and dry. My caddie is reading the putts well, and I'm just really comfortable here."

Overnight leader Shiv Kapur, of India, remained on 10 under after a 72 which included six birdies and six bogeys - while Vijay Singh faltered to nine under after bogeys on the 16th and 17th and a three-putt for par at the final hole.

It was a disappointing day for India's Gaurav Ghei, who appeared to have climbed into contention after shooting a seven-under-par 65 to move to nine under.

But he was disqualified after it was revealed that he had signed for a wrong score the previous day.
