Andy Murray was selected for Great Britain's Davis Cup team but rising star Jack Draper missed out.

The Scot joins Cameron Norrie, Dan Evans and world doubles number one Joe Salisbury for the group stage of the competition in Glasgow next month, BBC wrote.

Draper, 20, has not been selected despite surging from outside the top 250 to 55 in the rankings this season.

"It's always special playing in a Davis Cup tie in front of a home crowd," Murray said.

"Some of the best moments of my career have come representing my country in the Davis Cup, so to be a part of the team again means a lot."

The team will face the United States, Kazakhstan and the Netherlands and will be led by British number one Norrie, who welcomed Murray back to the team following a two-year absence.

"Coming into a Davis Cup as the British number one – it doesn't get much better than that," Norrie said.

"Having Andy in the team of course is a real boost. Both him and Dan were here in 2015 when we went on to win the competition and having that experience is really important, but it also drives the rest of us to get there as well."

Murray, 35, is ranked 47th in the world, eight places higher than Draper who reached his first quarter-final of a Masters 1,000 tournament at the Canadian Open last week.
