Indian players available for next Davis Cup tie



Leading Indian players who boycotted last week's Davis Cup defeat against South Korea say they're available for the playoff tie against Indonesia in April.

The 11-strong group, including Somdev Devvarman and Mahesh Bhupathi, has accepted new terms offered by the All India Tennis Association but says that since a number of issues "remain unresolved", their confirmation of availability is limited to the Indonesia tie.

Leander Paes was the only prominent name in India's team which lost 4-1 to South Korea in the Asia-Oceania Group after players declined to confirm their availability for selection due to an impasse over team management and prize money.

VM Ranjith and Vijayant Malik lost both their singles matches while Purav Raja partnered doubles specialist Paes in the only win for the home side.
