Where is the Davis Cup match between India and Pakistan being played?

Paes had taken 56 ties for his 43rd win while Pietrangeli competed in 66 ties and won 42 doubles matches. The manner in which India annihilated Pakistan was exemplary, ruthless and uncompromising as all three matches turned out to be mostly one-sided, in fact, there was simply no contest.

Ever since the draw for the Group I Asia/Oceania came out, it was clear how tough it would be to stage the tie between Pakistan and India. In the second set, Rehman-Shoaib showed some resistance as they fended off three break points in their first two service games to stay level but then Paes-Jeevan got the breakthrough eventually and easily sealed the match from there.

India progressed to the 2020 Qualifiers after securing a 4-0 lead against Pakistan in the Davis Cup on Saturday.India completed a 4-0 win after Sumit Nagal defeated Yousef Kalil 6-1 6-0 in 32 minutes long clash. "No other sporting team has toured there for two decades and all of a sudden they are saying India tennis team should go, and everybody is criticising the boys for taking a stance, that was very unfair", Bhupathi said on the sidelines of an event in Mumbai.

The uncertainty over the venue remained till the last moment and it only added up the confusion regarding players selection in both the sides.

"It was easy win, I understand they are young players, need experience". This Pakistani pair could not survive in front of Leander Paes and Jeevan.

India had to feature in this playoffs with Pakistan after going down 3-1 to Italy in February in Kolkata. Paes and Jeevan grabbed the second.

India's non-playing captain Rohit Rajpal dedicated the win to the country's armed forces.

Thus, India is the last country to secure the Davis Cup Qualifiers berth, facing Croatia between March 5-7, 2020, and hoping to reach the Davis Cup Finals for the first time. The Indians had a few chances to break their rivals early in the second set but the Pakistani duo held its nerves to save them.
