New Delhi, Mar 18 (PTI) Rashid Khan on Saturday battled the wet conditions, a rain-induced break and an opening double bogey but still managed to open a solid three-shot lead going into the final day of The DGC Open here.

Rashid (68), who was three shots behind the overnight leader S Chikkarangappa (74) after the second round, shot his third straight under-par round as he makes a bid for his third Asian Tour win. His last win at the continental tour came in 2014 while he was runner-up twice last year.

Rashid led the field at 11-under, while Chikkarangappa (74), who could not get his putter going on the wet greens, dropped to second at 8-under.
