London: Britain will have to make do without world number one Andy Murray for their Davis Cup quarter-final in France after he was omitted on Tuesday from captain Leon Smith's team due to injury.

Wimbledon champion Murray is still struggling with the elbow injury that forced him to miss the Miami Open.

"Not having Andy in the side is obviously a big loss ...but most importantly we all wish him well for a speedy recovery back to full health and fitness," Smith said.

"I know that he would really want to be here with the rest of the team."

The 2015 champions will instead rely on Dan Evans and Kyle Edmund, ranked 43 and 45 respectively, for the match in Rouen on April 7 to 9.

Jamie Murray and Dominic Inglot are the doubles players.

While Murray's absence is a blow he also sat out the World Group first round tie in Canada which Britain won.

"This is a team with significant Davis Cup experience now and these guys have all stepped up and delivered performances at the very top of the competition," Smith said.

The two nations are meeting for the second time in three years after Murray inspired Britain to a quarter-final victory at Queen's Club in 2015.

France captain Yannick Noah is yet to select his team but could have Jo-Wilfried Tsonga back after he missed the first round victory over Japan. Richard Gasquet, Gilles Simon and Nicolas Mahut are also options.
