The Indian pair of Yuki Bhambri and Divij Sharan on Sunday lifted the men's doubles title at the Busan Open Challenger here after beating the Taiwanese duo of Cheng Peng Hsieh and Hsin Han Lee.

The unseeded Indian duo came back from a set down to get the better of Hsish and Hsin 1-6, 6-1, 10-5 in the USD 75,000 Challenger tennis tournament.

The Indians saved as many as five out of seven break points, while converting two out of four that came their way during the match that lasted just over an hour.

Yuki and Divij, the last of the direct entries to the main draw, were playing together for the first time.

Having lost the first set without posing a fight, the Indian combo did well to bounce back into the match to topple their third seeded opponents.

After clinching the second set comfortably, Yuki and Divij held on to the advantage as they refused to give the Taiwanese duo any chance of making a comeback.
