AKIPRESS.COM - Bengaluru has been named as the venue for the India vs Uzbekistan Asia Oceania Zone group I Davis Cup tie from 7-9 April 2017, the All India Tennis Association said.
India had defeated New Zealand 4-1 in the first round at Pune earlier this month while Uzbekistan got the better of Korea 3-1 in the away first round tie, NDTV reported.
The two countries are locked 2-2 in a head-to-head record and the last time India and Uzbekistan clashed was in April 2012 when the latter emerged 3-2 winners in a home tie.
Bengaluru last hosted the Davis Cup World Group play off tie against Serbia in September 2014 when India went down 2-3 to the Serbians.
The winner of the tie will advance to the World Group Play-offs, to be held in September.
