World No 3 Andy and older brother Jamie recovered from a set down to secure a thrilling 4-6, 6-3, 6-4, 6-7 (6/8), 6-4 victory in a gruelling four-hour rubber.

Victory gave the home side a 2-1 lead and it means Andy Murray can now clinch the tie for Great Britain in Sunday's first reverse singles as they attempt to win the competition for the first time since 1936.

The 28-year-old will secure a final showdown against either Belgium or Argentina in November if he defeats opponent Bernard Tomic.
