Tennis: ITF shifts India-Pak Davis Cup tie

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

The Independent Tribunal of the ITF endorsed the decision taken by the Davis Cup Committee on November 4 that the tie should be shifted to a neutral venue, keeping in mind safety and security of players and officials.

Pakistan Tennis Federation had filed an appeal contesting the decision. It argued that if Indian pilgrims can visit Pakistan without any security threat, why the Indian team could not play matches in Islamabad.
