'Fit-again' Amir to play Champions Trophy final against India

ANI  |  Karachi [Pakistan] 

fast bowler Mohammad Amir is all set to play in the high-octane Champions Trophy final against arch-rival after recovering fully from a back spasm.

Team administration confirmed the news about Amir's participation in the final match against title-holders at the Kennington Oval on Sunday, the Dawn reported.

The 25-year-old was also seen practising at the Oval ground on Friday, two days ahead of the match.

Amir was earlier forced to sit-out during his side's surprising eight-wicket win over in the first semi-final of the eight-team marquee event at the Sophia Gardens in Cardiff on Wednesday.

Rumman Raees had replaced him in Pakistan's Playing XI during that match.
