(CNN) -- Veteran Briton Barry Lane leads the way after the second round of the Avantha Masters in Delhi on Friday.

Lane, 49, lies on a 10-under-par total of 134 after carding a second successive 67, level with compatriot John Parry and Chan Yih-shin of Taiwan -- who were still on the course with one hole to play after being called in due to lightning.

The trio are one stroke ahead of four players, Australian Andrew Dodt (68), Britons David Drysdale (67) and Darren Beck (65) and Singaporean Lan Chin-bing (68).

In a tightly-packed leaderboard, another four players, including Ryder Cup player Darren Clarke who carded nine birdies in his 66, are a further stroke back on 136.

Amongst that group is opening round leader Marcel Seim, with the German dropping off the pace after three bogeys in a row saw him one-over-par for the day with three holes still to play.

The inaugural tournament, tri-sanctioned between the European Tour, the Asian Tour and the Professional Golf Tour of India, is being staged at the DLF Golf and Country Club -- the venue of the 2008 Johnnie Walker Classic, won by New Zealand's Mark Brown.
