Nathan Coulter-Nile is one of the most gifted athletes of all his contemporaries in an age replete with fast bowling skill in Australia, and has been a fixture in Australia’s limited-overs forms when fit and healthy.
Despite being predominantly a fast bowler, Coulter-Nile was initially called up to Australia’s Champions Trophy team in 2013 due to his all-round abilities as well as his bowling. Coulter-Nile, dubbed “one of the three or four greatest fieldsmen in Australia” by national selector John Inverarity, is an active presence on the field who offers powerful lower-order hitting to any team for which he plays. His international career, on the other hand, has been stop-start from the start, with significant back, hamstring, and shoulder problems thwarting any effort at a long run with the national team.
He’s been on the verge of winning a baggy green on many occasions, but injuries and Australia’s deep fast bowling depth have kept him out, and a back ailment in 2017 forced him to forego first-class cricket for the time being in order to focus on the short overs forms.
Coulter-Nile can get the ball to kick off a decent length at pace, making him an awkward bowler to face. In the 2012-13 Australian domestic season, he made a name for himself by winning the Laurie Sawle Medal as Western Australia’s Player of the Year. It was a breakout season for Coulter-Nile, who made his T20I debut in February and was acquired by four different clubs after being sold to Mumbai Indians for $450,000 at the IPL auction the same month. In his youth, he was a good volleyball player, but his raw cricketing potential saw him represent Australia at the Under-19 level before making his Western Australian debut in late 2009.
