Great Britain's Fed Cup team will travel to Argentina in April after reaching the World Group II play-offs for the second year in succession.

Their victory over Bulgaria in Israel on Sunday sent Judy Murray's team through from the Euro/Africa Group.

And the draw with Argentina gives them a great chance to move into the world's top 16 in 2014.

Great Britain currently boast both Heather Watson and Laura Robson in the world's top 50 whilst Argentina's leading player is Paula Ormaechea who is ranked a lowly 195 in the world.

Great Britain - currently ranked one place above Argentina at 16 in the Fed Cup rankings - won both their previous encounters, the last of which took place in the then West Germany in 1980.
