Teo Ee Yi-Ong Yew Sin ended their four-year title drought in style by lifting the men's doubles crown at the Thailand Masters in Huamark Indoor Stadium, Bangkok.

The world No. 20 staged a brave come-from-behind 18-21 21-17 21-17 victory in 72 minutes against obstinate opponents, Huang Kai Xiang-Liu Cheng of China.

In the earlier rounds, Kai Xiang-Liu Cheng had beaten Malaysian pairs, Aaron Chia-Soh Wooi Yik (first round) and Goh V Shem-Tan Wee Kiong (semi-finals) in straight sets.

It was memorable result for the rejuvenated pair as they sealed their second career international title after the Bitburger Open 2016 in Germany.
