Karachi [Pakistan], June 16 (ANI): Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Amir is all set to play in the high-octane Champions Trophy final against arch-rival India after recovering fully from a back spasm. Team administration confirmed the news about Amir's participation in the final match against title-holders India 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 England 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. (ANI)
