Andy Murray and brother Jamie lead Great Britain's bid for a first Davis Cup final appearance in 37 years against Australia in a hotly anticipated semi-final clash in Glasgow from Friday.

In the second semi-final Belgium take on Argentina in Brussels, with neither country having ever lifted the coveted salad bowl trophy awaiting the winner.

Britain tackle old sporting foes Australia in front of a partisan crowd at the Emirates Arena in Glasgow when the first two singles rubbers are staged on Friday.

Saturday will likely feature the Murrays in the pivotal doubles while Australia, captained by Wally Masur, will be led by world number 23 Bernard Tomic and iconic 34-year-old veteran Leyton Hewitt.

Australia won the last of their 28 titles in 2003 when Hewitt was in the team as a 22-year-old, beating Spain 3-1 in Melbourne.

Scotland's Murray brothers can expect passionate home support in Glasgow and Jamie believes they have what it takes to win the competition for the first time since 1936, which was Britain's ninth crown.
