(CNN) -- India's Shiv Kapur and Belgian Nicolas Colsaerts share the lead at the halfway stage of the KLM Dutch Open at Hilversum.
Colsaerts was unable to match his opening round eight-under-par 62, carding a level-par 70 for a 36-hole total of 132, while Kapur carded a 68 to add to his opening 64.
The pair are one stroke clear of Sweden's Christian Nilsson, 2004 British Open champion Todd Hamilton and Frenchman Jean-Francois Lucquin.
A group of seven players lie a further shot behind, including European Ryder Cup star Martin Kaymer, who carded a second successive 67.
"I hit the ball quite well. I suppose you could always have a couple of shots better," Kapur told the official European Tour website.
"It would have been nice to birdie the 18th but overall I am happy," added the 28-year-old former Asian Tour rookie of the year.
Meanwhile, Kaymer told reporters he is happy with his form ahead of the Ryder Cup next month. "I am playing well, I just need to the putts to drop."
