2 - shot lead for S.S.P Chawrasia, who heads into the final round at 14 under par.

2 - shot lead for S.S.P in last year's event at the same stage - he eventually finished second after losing out in a play-off to Anirban Lahiri.

32 - holes without a bogey for S.S.P, with the Indian making nine straight pars on his back nine.

1 - miraculous par save from Chawrasia at the par three 12th hole, from a terrible lie:

1 - only once in the seven rounds S.S.P has played in this event since it became a European Tour event, has the 37 year old failed to shoot a round in the 60s.

16 - from 18 in scrambling for S.S.P this week, which goes some way to showing why the two time European Tour winner is known as 'India's Seve'.

14 - holes without a birdie for Pilkadaris, who is still just two shots back heading into the final day after a moving day 73.

7 - shots off the pace heading into the final round last year, defending champion Lahiri is just four back this time after a bogey-free 67.

79 - for Nacho Elvira, who was out in the final group on day three - 13 shots worse off than his first round 66.

5 - Indians are in the top ten - they are S.S.P, Lahiri, Rashid Khan, Rahil Gangjee and Arjun Atwal.

212 - last year S.S.P ranked last on The European Tour in the average driving distance stats, averaging 263 yards from the tee. However the home star has a special short game.

9 - the par four ninth hole played the toughest, averaging 4.35 and only giving away 2 birdies all day.

43 - out of the 74 players who played the par five first hole made birdie or better.
