Newly-appointed Davis Cup captain Anand Amritraj is confident that it will be "smooth sailing" for the Indian team in 2014 as the players' revolt was thing of the past but he wants to have a say in the decision-making process for taking the team back to the elite World Group.

AITA roped in Anand as the non-playing captain in place of S P Misra after top players revolted for better playing conditions and demanded a change in the support staff. ā€œ2014 will be different than this year as there were some problems.

I think next year would be smooth since the players have got what they wanted, it will be smooth sailing,ā€ Amritraj told PTI from Los Angeles after being appointed India's non-playing captain.

ā€œI am hoping I will be part of the selection process and my input makes a difference. We have to pick the best team. We have to pick the team on ranking as well.ā€
