DNA (Delhi) - - DNA SPORTS -

Syd­ney, Nov 10 (AFP) Aus­tralian fast bowler Nathan Coul­terNile will take a “short break” af­ter suf­fer­ing a fresh back prob­lem, Cricket Aus­tralia said on Fri­day, prob­a­bly rul­ing him out of the com­ing Ashes se­ries. Coul­ter-Nile, 30, has a his­tory of spinal stress frac­tures and the lat­est set­back ap­pears to end his chances of be­ing a back-up to Aus­tralia’s pace trio Mitchell Starc, Josh Ha­zle­wood and Pat Cum­mins against Eng­land. “Nathan ex­pe­ri­enced some pain in his back fol­low­ing the two-day tour match against Eng­land last week,” CA’s sports medicine man­ager Alex Koun­touris said. “Sub­se­quent scans have re­vealed an early stage ag­gra­va­tion of his old stress frac­ture. “Whilst this is a set­back, the good news is that it has been picked up early so we are only con­sid­er­ing a short break from bowl­ing.”
