The Davis Cup Asia-Oceania group-1 tie against Pakistan will be held in Islamabad on September 14 and 15.

The rising cross-border tensions seem to have had little bearing — at least for now — as India named a five-member squad for the Davis Cup tie against Pakistan.

Asked if there were any fresh apprehensions about travelling, India’s Davis Cup coach Zeeshan Ali replied in the negative.

“With India and Pakistan something keeps happening daily. There are still five weeks to go for the tie. The players were a bit concerned a few days back. But once those issues were cleared it has been fine.

“I am very happy that we have been able to choose a full strength team.”
