Profile

Although primarily a fast bowler, Nathan Coulter-Nile earned a call-up to Australia's Champions Trophy squad in 2013 through his all-round talents as much as his work with the ball. Described by the national selector John Inverarity as "one of the three or four best fieldsmen in Australia", Coulter-Nile is an energetic presence on the field and adds explosive lower-order hitting to any side for which he plays. During the 2012-13 BBL, he struck one of the biggest sixes ever seen at the Gabba, during an innings of 23 from six balls that drove his team the Perth Scorchers to victory. But his main job is as a right-arm fast-medium bowler. A sometimes awkward bowler to face, Coulter-Nile can get the ball to kick off a good length and finished second on the Ryobi Cup wicket tally in 2012-13 with 16 victims at 23.18. He also collected 26 Sheffield Shield wickets and won the Laurie Sawle Medal as Western Australia's Player of the Year. It was a breakthrough season for Coulter-Nile, who made his Twenty20 international debut in February and was sold to Mumbai Indians for $450,000 at the IPL auction the same month. A former Australia Under-19s representative, Coulter-Nile has been a promising presence at state level since making his debut for Western Australia in late 2009.
