Indian Davis Cup Team in Pakistan After 60 Years

The Indian national Davis Cup team reached Pakistan for the first time in 60 years to play against the Asian neighbours at the Islamabad Sports Complex.

India and Pakistan will clash on February 3-4 in a World Group I tie. The winner will stay in Group I while the losing team will be relegated to Group II.

India have never lost a tie to Pakistan in Davis Cup history.

The Indian High Commission in Pakistan welcomed the players of the Indian Davis Cup team on Wednesday. Geetika Srivastava, the first woman to head the Indian High Commission in Pakistan, accorded a warm welcome to the Indian players and officials on Wednesday.

In 1964, an Indian Davis Cup team travelled to Pakistan. Since then no Indian Davis Cup team has played in Pakistan. Tension between the two countries has hit sporting ties between the two nations.

“It’s a historic occasion that an Indian team is visiting Pakistan after such a long time. All of us here wish the team well for the match against Pakistan,” Shrivastava said.
