After success in the Davis Cup 2013, the Vietnamese team was promoted to Group II.

Meanwhile, the Sri Lankans have played in Group II since 2012 and stand at 62 nd position in the world rankings, 10 places higher than Vietnam. The team lost to the Philippines earlier this month in their first round tie in Colombia.
