India’s Chiragh Kumar (71-69-66) and MD Siddikur Rahman (71-66-69) were also at a tied-2nd place.
Although their tied-2nd position does not guarantee a win from here on, as the gap between Kaul and them is five shots that only fades when Kshitij witness a really off day or someone from the trio does some magic a 10-under maybe or even lower.
Divesh Rana of Faridabad was a further shot back at 9-under 207.
Sunit Chowrasia, the nephew of legendary Indian golfer SSP Chawrasia, recovered from his first day 72 with two back-to-back 68s to be placed tied-6th entering into final round.
