Yuki Bhambri and Divij Sharan won the men's doubles crown at the Busan Open Challenger after the Indian pair beat Taiwanese duo of Cheng Peng Hsieh and Hsin Han Lee 1-6, 6-1, 10-5.

The unseeded Indians rallied from a set down to get past Hsish and Hsin in the USD 75,000 Challenger tennis tournament. The Indian duo saved five break points, while converting two out of four that came their way during the match that lasted just over an hour. 

Yuki and Divij, who teamed up for the first time, was the last of the direct entries to the main draw. Having almost surrendered the first set, they did well to snatch the match from their third seeded opponents. Yuki and Divij held on to the advantage and gave no chance to Taiwanese.
