LONDON – Mohammad Amir has regained fitness and is ready to play the Champions Trophy final match against arch-rival India at The Oval on Sunday, confirmed coach Mickey Arthur on Saturday.
The fast bowler could not play the semi-final against England due to back spasms.
In place of the star fast bowler debutant, Rumman Raees was included in the final playing eleven against the hosts. Raees took two wickets in the match with an economy of 4.88.
Amir was spotted participating in the Pakistan team’s nets session.
Pakistan’s bowling coach Azhar Mahmood also told the media yesterday: “He (Amir) is better and has participated in nets, but the management has yet to decide on his inclusion in the playing XI for the final match.”
Pakistan is all set to face arch-rival India at The Oval in south London tomorrow.
