Davis Cup: AITA seeks another security check in Islamabad from world body

@DavisCup
India's national tennis federation today decided that it will not seek a change of venue for the Davis Cup tie versus Pakistan in Islamabad but requested the world body ITF to conduct another security check there in view of the fresh diplomatic tension.
 
India's participation in the Asia-Oceania Zone Group 1 Davis Cup tie, scheduled on September 14 and 15, is uncertain owing to high political tension with Pakistan.

 Meanwhile, Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju made it clear that the government will not have a say in the matter as Davis Cup is not a bilateral engagement. He said, Davis Cup is not bilateral and is organised by a world sporting body. 

No Indian Davis Cup team has travelled to Pakistan since 1964 and bilateral cricket ties between the two countries have been dormant since the 2008 terror attacks in Mumbai.
