Jeevan Nedunchezhiyan and Leander Paes won the match against Huzaifa Abdul Rehman and Muhammad Shoaib 6-1, 6-3 in the only doubles match of the tie between India and Pakistan. With the win, India win the tie 3-0, with two reverse singles still left in the schedule. Rehman-Shoaib began well by holding their serve but they went flat after that. Paes-Jeevan held their first serve and then went on a breaking spree to seal the first set. 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. Earlier on Day 1, India took a 2-0 lead against a hapless Pakistan on Day 1 of the Asia-Oceania Group 1 tie of the Davis Cup with some brilliant performance by Ramkumar Ramanathan and Sumit Nagal.
