New Delhi [India], Apr. 11 (ANI): India will take on Canada in the Davis Cup World Group Playoff scheduled to take place from September 15 to 17. The information was posted on the official Twitter handle of the Davis Cup. Last week, India qualified for the playoff after beating Uzbekistan 4-1 in a home tie held in Bengaluru. The Uzbekistan tie in the Asia/Oceania Zone Group I tie was Mahesh Bhupathi's first as non-playing captain, and also marked the first time Leander Paes was dropped from India's Davis Cup squad in his 27-year-long career, since his Davis Cup debut against Japan in 1990. The draw for the Playoffs also pitted defending champions and top-seeded nation Argentina against Kazakhstan in Kazakhstan. Last year's runners-up Croatia, seeded second among the eight losing teams in the World Group first round, will take on Colombia in Colombia.(ANI)
