English duo John Parry and Barry Lane were in a three-way tie for the lead in India when lightning brought the second round to a halt at the Avantha Masters.

Yorkshireman Parry, 23, was five under with one hole to play at New Delhi's DLF Golf and Country Club, while Lane had taken the clubhouse lead with a 67.

Taiwan's Chan Yih-shin, who had one hole to complete, was also on 10 under.

Scotland's David Drysdale shot a second-round 67 to join a group of five on nine under.

"I have actually started off the year all right but my problem for the past two years has been my putting," said 49-year-old Lane.


"I have managed to post a couple of 68s here and there and then I have had a nice couple of 67s to start the week here.

"If you can shoot those scores then you know that there is something there but I have really struggled with my putting and that has stopped me from scoring well all the time."

Northern Irishman Darren Clarke sank nine birdies in a second-round 66 to climb back into contention at seven under par.

"I started off a bit out of sorts - I couldn't quite figure the swing out and then it clicked into place about the 14th and I hit some really nice shots after that," he said.
