Andy Murray has been named in the GB squad for their World Group play-off against Croatia between the 15-17 September in Umag.

Captain Leon Smith has named the Wimbledon Champion alongside Dan Evans, James Ward and Colin Fleming.

The winners of this tie will advance to the elite 16-nation Davis Cup by BNP Paribas World Group which Britain have not taken part in since 2008.

“We are delighted to be sending our strongest possible team to Umag in what will be a very tough tie," said Smith.

"Croatia are former winners of the Davis Cup and currently ranked No. 11 in the world, but as we proved in Coventry back in April, we can upset the odds. May the best team win promotion into the World Group.”

Murray is currently competing in the US Open and hopes to retain the title he won in 2012. He plays Uzbekistan's Denis Istomin on Tuesday evening in the fourth round.

Jonny Marray is likely to be the man added to the Davis Cup team if Murray reaches the US Open final in New York and does not feel he can compete so soon afterwards.

Matches commence at 10am British time Friday and Sunday, while the doubles on Saturday will be at 1pm British time.
