NEW DELHI - Australia's Wade Ormsby took a two-stroke lead at the halfway stage of the Asian Tour event in India on Friday after posting a five-under-par 67 for a second day running.

Ormsby moved to 10-under at the $US300,000 ($F534,295) tournament to sit on top of the leaderboard ahead of Singapore's Lam Chih Bing.

Lam, who had shared the overnight lead with Ormsby and fellow Australian Kieran Pratt, carded a 69 at Delhi Golf Club while Indian hope SSP Chowrasia and Thai veteran Boonchu Ruangkit were equal-third at six-under.

The 33-year-old Ormsby began the day with two birdies in his opening three holes.

He birdied again on the eight before dropping his only shot of the round on the par-four nine, and turned on 34.
