Shanghai:

The young Indian pair of Yuki Bhambri and Divij Sharan ended runner-up at the Shanghai ATP Challenger tournament after losing the summit clash to the experienced top seeded pair of Sanchai and Sonchat Ratiwatana, here.

The second seeded Indian team played well before losing 4-6 4-6 to their rivals from Thailand.

It was good match practice for the young Indians, who will lead country's challenge in the upcoming Davis Cup tie against New Zealand in the absence of big stars such as Leander Paes and Mahesh Bhupathi.

Yuki and Divij split USD 4,240 between them as prize money and earned 48 ranking points each.

Yuki had lost in the second round of the singles event to fellow Davis Cup teammate Sanam Singh, who lost to eventual winner Lu Yen-Hsun of Chinese Taipei.
