India eased past Pakistan 4-0 in their World Group I play-off tie Sunday, as they proved superior in both doubles and singles on Islamabad's grass courts.

A dominant India never looked back after winning both singles matches on Saturday, taking their overall record in the Davis Cup against Pakistan to 8-0.

The Indian pair of Saketh Myneni and Yuki Bhambri were too good for the Pakistani duo of Aqeel Khan and Muzammil Murtaza, winning 6-2, 7-6.

Veteran Pakistani player Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi could not take the court due to a hamstring injury sustained on Saturday, hurting Pakistan's chances in the doubles.

Indian Niki Poonacha took his match against a youthful Muhammad Shoaib 6-3, 6-4, winning in 64 minutes.

The twelve winning nations from the World Group I play-offs will play a World Group I tie in September while the same number of losing nations will contest a World Group II tie, also in September.
