Glasgow: Dan Evans was on Thursday given a surprise singles berth for Great Britain`s Davis Cup semi-final against Australia in Glasgow this weekend.

Evans, the world number 300, has been selected alongside world number three Andy Murray and ahead of James Ward and Kyle Edmund, who has recently overcome an ankle injury.

Doubles specialists Jamie Murray, brother of Andy, and Dom Inglot make up the team.

Andy Murray will launch the British team`s bid to reach a first final since 1978 against Thanasi Kokkinakis on Friday, before Evans tackles Bernard Tomic.
