Vidhatri suffered back-to-back bogeys on the fourth and the fifth holes, but made up with a birdie on the sixth. On the back nine, she dropped shots on the 12th and 15th and fell further back with a double bogey on the Par-4 16th. A closing birdie for a day’s card of 74 kept her within distance at 3-over 143 and two behind the leader Khushi. Astha Madan (74-71) was fifth and another new pro, Anvitha Narender (74-72) was sixth.

Experienced Amandeep Drall made a 7-shot improvement on her 1st round 77. She is now tied 7th with amateur Mannat Brar (75-72) and Rhea Purvi Saravanan (73-74).
