When play was called to a halt South African's dominated the leaderboard with Hennie Otto and Jbe Kruger leading at 9 under followed one shot further back by last week's Masters runner-up Louis Oosthuizen.
Both Otto and Kruger had completed their rounds while for Oosthuizen he has a chance to perhaps take the lead when he finishes off his final few holes tomorrow.
Amongst those at 7 under and two behind the leaders are Martin Kaymer, American, David Lipsky, and Scot, Stephen Gallacher.
The leading Australasian is last week's winner in Singapore Scott Hend who is at 3 under in 24th position and six shots from the lead. Hend added a second round of 71 to his opening 70.
The next best of the Australasians is New Zealander Michael Campbell who through 9 holes of round two is at 2 under and well inside the cut line. Campbell has missed the cut in his last twelve starts worldwide so the next nine holes he plays could prove to be a significant turnaround for the 43 year old.
