Great Britain will play Croatia in the Davis Cup World Group playoffs in September.

Great Britain will go up against Croatia in the Davis Cup World Group playoffs following the official draw today.

The team could enter the 16-strong World Group for the first time since 2008 if they defeat Croatia, who are expected to include Marin Cilic and Ivan Dodig.

Leon Smith's team became part of the playoffs following Sunday's 3-2 defeat over Russia in Coventry.

The ties will go ahead on September 13 and 15, when British number one Andy Murray is expected to take to the court.

Great Britain have competed in the competition 18 times but have won just eight.
