AITA Secretary General Hironmoy Chatterjee said, "ITF Executive Director Justine Albert was unavailable today so it has been postponed to tomorrow."

India's non-playing Davis Cup captain Mahesh Bhupathi, who was to be part of the conference call, confirmed that the discussions have been postponed by a day.

"Yes (it has been postponed). It will now take place at 7 in the evening tomorrow," Bhupathi told IANS.

Bhupathi will be part of the conference call which will further decide on the next course of action as to whether the much-talked-about tie will be shifted to another venue or not.

India were all set to go to Pakistan before relations between the two countries deteriorated further in the aftermath of the abrogation of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir. The scrapping has turned the state into two Union Territories -- Jammu & Kashmir, and Ladakh.

Pakistan's diplomatic ties with India took a beating post the turn of events. ITF has previously turned down India's security concerns to finally settle for a discussion on the matter.

The tie, scheduled to be held in Islamabad, has become a matter of speculation ever since Pakistan downgraded diplomatic ties with India citing the revocation status enjoyed by Jammu and Kashmir.
