Deccan Chronicle - - Cricket -

Perth: Nathan Coul­ter-Nile, who was picked this week for Aus­tralia’s one-day and Twenty20 tour of In­dia, was taken to hos­pi­tal Satur­day after a bout of ver­tigo dur­ing a Big Bash League game. The Perth Scorchers fast bowler had de­liv­ered the fifth ball of his fi­nal over late in the Twenty20 match against the Ade­laide Strik­ers when he sig­nalled that all was not well. After con­sult­ing with Perth cap­tain Mitchell Marsh, he bowled the sixth ball, which was hit for six, be­fore sink­ing to his haunches and sit­ting on the ground. Scorchers physio Chris Quin­nell said Coul­ter-Nile had suf­fered a “bad bout of ver­tigo”. “He was taken to hos­pi­tal after the game as a pre­cau­tion and will be mon­i­tored over the next few hours, Quin­nell said on the BBL web­site. Coul­ter-Nile’s in­clu­sion in Aus­tralia’s squad for the In­dia tour came after he was left out of re­cent home limited overs in­ter­na­tion­als with back is­sues.
