Miami:

Indian doubles stars Mahesh Bhupathi and Leander Paes said their Miami Masters triumph was inspired by watching their country's World Cup win over Sri Lanka.

The duo watched the Mumbai final, where India defeated Sri Lanka by six wickets, on a live stream before going on court to defeat Max Mirnyi and Daniel Nestor 6-7 (5/7), 6-2, 10-5.

"It gave us extra motivation. It's a big deal for our country and kudos to the whole team," said Bhupathi.

Paes added: "I just want to congratulate the team, all of them. Great job boys."
