Amir fit for Champions Trophy final


Pakistan pacer Mohammad Amir has been passed fit to face India in the ICC Champions Trophy final at The Oval.

Left-armer Amir missed the semi-final win over England after suffering a back spasm in the warm-up.

The 25-year-old has taken just two wickets in the tournament so far, but he has delivered an impressive economy of 4.79 in his three outings.

Amir has taken just two wickets in three ODI appearances against India - including the 124-run thrashing Virat Kohli's men dished out in the sides' first match of this Champions Trophy.

Fellow pacer Hasan Ali has shone amid Amir's struggles to strike, taking 10 wickets - more than anyone else in the competition.
