Veteran Indian tennis star Leander Paes and his Canadian partner Adil Shamsdin clinched the men's doubles title at the Aegon IIkley Challenger Trophy on Saturday. The top seeds defeated local wild card entrants Brydan Klein and Joe Salisbury 2-6, 6-2, [10-8] to clinch the trophy.

The match was evenly poised till the end with the UK pair outclassing the Indo-Canadian duo in the first set. The second set though was the complete opposite as the 44-year Indian and his teammate turned things around impressive.

The decisive match tiebreak went to the wire, with both the pairs trying hard to take a lead. The duo of Paes and Shamsdin took a slender lead to clinch the set and the trophy.
