Bad back keeps Coulter-Nile out

The Myanmar Times - - Sport -

AUSTRALIA pace bowler Nathan Coulter -Nile faces a lengthy spell out of cricket af­ter be­ing di­ag­nosed with a se­ri­ous back in­jury, Cricket Australia said yes­ter­day.

Coulter-Nile, 28, was forced home from Australia’s one-day se­ries in Sri Lanka last week with the back com­plaint which has been found to be a bone stress in­jury that will re­quire a “lengthy re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion pe­riod”.

It is yet an­other sig­nif­i­cant blow for the in­jury-prone West Aus­tralian fast bowler.

He dis­lo­cated his right shoul­der when he fell in a do­mes­tic Big Bash League Twenty20 match in De­cem­ber, which fol­lowed a left shoul­der in­jury dur­ing the do­mes­tic one-day cup com­pe­ti­tion.

Coulter-Nile was also sent home from Australia’s tour of Eng­land in Septem­ber last year with a right ham­string in­jury. –
