The duo managed second rounds of 71 and 72 to take their total of two rounds to one-under-par 143.
Kamalizeni said he will stay focused.
“I am happy with my game so far and I am looking forward to keeping the momentum,” he said. “I am hitting the ball well and I will stay focused and take each shot as it comes and try to maintain some decent scores.
“I have a good feeling so I will come and try my best. The course is wet but playing well so I am looking forward to the final round,” Kamalizeni said.
