Nathan Coulter-Nile Biography
Known primarily for his bowling skills, Nathan Coulter-Nile has been described by national selector John Inverarity as “one of the three or four best fieldsmen in Australia.” That he is also more than handy with the bat down the order (he once slammed a six-ball 23) makes him an ideal player to have in the line-up.
He won the Laurie Sawle Medal in 2012-13, and made his ODI debut for Australia in 2013. He has been more or less a regular member of their limited overs squad ever since. Coulter-Nile was a surprise pick by the Mumbai Indians for the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2013, but he justified his selection by being a part of their title-winning side. He was subsequently set for an extended run with the Delhi Daredevils in the 2014 IPL before an injury forced him out of contention midway through the tournament.
