Indian Davis Cupper Prakash Amritraj and his Pakistani partner Aisam-ul-haq-Qureshi on Saturday lifted euro 64,000 ATP Challenger tournament in Dublin, Ireland after a convincing straight sets win in the final.
The unseeded Indo-Pak combine outplayed the fourth seeded pair of Briton Jonathan Marray and Frederik Nielsen of Denmark 6-3 7-6 (6) in the men's doubles summit clash of the artificial grass court tournament.
The win fetched the winners euro 3,950 and 60 ATP ranking points.
The combination of the National Champion Ashutosh Singh and Harsh Mankad had bit the dust in the first round itself.
Amritraj had crashed out of the singles event after losing to sixth seed Australian Robert Smeets in the quarterfinal match.
