Diksha Dagar fought back strongly to make the cut along with compatriot Pranavi Urs at the Ladies Open by Pickala Rock Resort Siuntio, Finland.
Needing a good solid second round after a birdie-less first round of 74, Diksha played a stunning 5-under for the front nine but then dropped two bogeys against just one birdie on the back nine, for 4-under 68.
The round of 68 meant she was 2-under for 36 holes and comfortably made the cut in ied-32nd place.
Pranavi Urs was the only other Indian to make the cut as she added 1-under 71 to her first round 72 to be 1-under and was Tied-40th. She had three birdies against two bogeys.
The remaining four Indians, Tvesa Malik (74-73), Ridhima Dilawari (73-75), Amandeep Drall (73-77) and Seher Atwal (78-72) missed the cut which fell at even par.
Diksha, who won the Czech Ladies Open a week earlier, struggled in tough conditions on the first day, but played superbly on the second. She now has a chance to move up further on the final day.
Johanna Gustavsson took a one-shot lead into the final round after carding a second successive 66 on a long second day.
After finishing her first round early on Friday following storm suspensions a day earlier, the Swede got straight to business when she made three birdies in a row on the 5th, 6th and 7th.
One behind Gustavsson is Alonso, who produced another stellar display to fire a 69 (-3) despite bogeying her final two holes.
Christine Wolf was in solo third after shooting 69 (-3) to take her total score to 10-under-par.
The cut fell at even-par with 62 players making it to the final round.
