London, June 16 - Pakistan pace spearhead Mohammad Amir completed an entire training session on Friday, indicating that he is most likely to take the field in the high-octane ICC Champions Trophy final against India at The Oval here on Sunday.

A back spasm had ruled Amir out of the semi-final against England, shortly before the toss on Wednesday.

Pakistan bowling coach Azhar Mahmood said Amir was fit but did not indicate whether the speedster would play on Sunday. 

"Amir bowled today. Amir is fit. We have not decided about (playing him)," Mahmood was quoted as saying by espncricinfo.

Mahmood dropped enough hints of including the left-arm pacer in the crucial tie with the kind of experience he brings into the side.

"When you go to a final, you want your experienced player, you want him to be fully fit and participating on that particular day. But (we have told him) if he has any doubt, he should let us know."

"At the moment he bowled today. He is fine. Yeah, definitely you would go with Amir, but we don't mind if Amir can't play. If he is not fit, then we have to move on," he added.
