Former Indian tennis player Anand Amritraj on 21 September 2013 appointed as non-playing captain of the Indian Davis Cup by All India Tennis Association. The 61 year old Amritraj replaced S P Misra, who lost his job after eight top players revolted, calling for changes in Davis Cup playing conditions.

The decision to appoint Amritraj was taken at All India Tennis Association's Executive Committee meeting in Goa on 21 September 2013. He will remain in job for year 2014.

The committee decided that Zeeshan Ali will continue as the coach. The venue for the Chinese Taipei tie has not been decided as yet. The committee also decided that Davis Cup venue should be rotated from state to state to allow more states to get an opportunity to host the Davis Cup Tie.
