India will travel to Nur-Sultan to take on Pakistan in the upcoming Davis Cup tie. The International Tennis Federation (ITF) has nominated the Kazakhstan capital to host the matches, ending days of uncertainty over the venue.

The davis cup tie will take place on 29th and 30th November in Nur-Sultan, formerly Astana, the capital of Kazakhstan.

All India Tennis Association,AITA  General Secretary Hironmoy Chatterjee said that the ITF has informed AITA that Pakistan’s appeal has been rejected.
 
The Independent Tribunal of the ITF endorsed the decision taken by the Davis Cup Committee on 4th November that the tie should be shifted to a neutral venue, keeping in mind safety and security of players and officials.

The tie was scheduled to be held in September but was pushed to November 29-30 after India expressed concerns about the safety of their players.

The side will be led by top singles players Sumit Nagal and Ramkumar Ramanathan while veteran Leander Paes and Jeevan Nedunchezhiyan are likely to pair up for the doubles.

Top doubles player Rohan Bopanna pulled out of the tie on Monday after suffering a shoulder injury.
