New Delhi: Shiv Prakash Misra is likely to continue as non-playing captain of the Indian Davis Cup team for the time being till the high-powered committee of the All India Tennis Association (AITA) goes into the demands raised by the rebel players.

"Removal of Misra as the Davis Cup captain was one of the demands of the 'rebels' who boycotted the tie against South Korea earlier this month, but he is likely to continue till the three-member committee submits its report on the various issues raised by Somdev Devvarman and others," a top AITA official told IANS on Friday.

As the national selection committee meets in New Delhi on Saturday to pick the squad for the Davis Cup first round play-off tie against Indonesia in April, the AITA apparently does not want to have any stop-gap arrangement.
