Murray led Scotland to victory against England last year
British number two Andy Murray will lead Scotland in November's Aberdeen Cup tournament against England.

The talented 19-year-old will captain the same team that beat England in the inaugural competition last year.

Jamie Murray, Andy's elder brother and Scotland's number one ranked doubles player, completes the team with British women's number two Elena Baltacha.

Greg Rusedski will lead an England team that includes James Auckland, who replaces David Sherwood.

The tournament, which takes place at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre, will represent Baltacha's return to competitive tennis after injury.

I can help Scotland to successfully retain the title.

"It's not often we get the chance to play in team events and to represent Scotland against England is a great opportunity," she said.

"I'll be working really hard to get back to full fitness for the Aberdeen Cup so that I can help Scotland to successfully retain the title."

Auckland will be part of Rusedski's team in Aberdeen and is regarded as one of the rising stars of British tennis.
