Jeev Milkha Singh gave himself an outside chance to make a bid for the Maybank Malaysian Open with a fine run of five-under through 11 holes in the third round of the tournament that has now been reduced to 54 holes.

He was lying tied 10th but only three shots behind the leader, Thailand’s Kiradech Aphibarnrat, who was 11-under through two holes in the third round.

Shiv Kapur, the only other Indian to make the cut when the second round was completed on Saturday, shot 71 in second round to make the cut and was then even par through seven holes in the third to get to one-under for 43 holes and tied 42nd.

Gaganjeet Bhullar (72-73), Jyoti Randhawa (71-74), Daniel Chopra (74-71), SSP Chowrasia (77-72) and Himmat Rai (76-81) had finished the second round on Friday and failed to make the cut.
