England's Hannah Burke equalled her career best finish with a tie for second at the Indian Open, five shots behind Gwladys Nocera of France.

Nocera, who had a nine-under-par 64 in her opening round, closed with two 72s to win on 11 under in Delhi.

Burke had a third successive two-under round of 71 to end on six under.

Switzerland's Fabienne In-Albon and South Korea's Hyeon Seo Kang hit 69s to tie Burke. India's Vaishnavi Sinha double bogeyed the 18th to end fifth.

Nocera began the final round with a two-stroke advantage over Sinha and maintained that lead over the front nine.

A bogey on the par-five 10th reduced her cushion to just one stroke but birdies on the 11th and 12th and took her three clear of Sinha.

Then a final birdie on the short 17th clinched victory win the penultimate European Tour event of the season.
