Australian pacer Nathan Coulter-Nile is set to undergo several medical tests after feeling some discomfort during Perth Scorchers’ last game of BBL against Adelaide Strikers at Adelaide Oval. He suffered a bout of vertigo during the game and left the field after receiving medical attention at the ground.
The injury-prone bowler felt some pain after delivering the fifth ball of his fourth over during the Big Bash League clash. Although he was in discomfort but finished his over before leaving the field. After the conclusion of the game, he visited the nearby hospital as a precautionary measure and is now set to undertake a string of tests.
He is named in the Australian squad to travel India for the limited-over series.
Adam Voges, Perth Scorchers’ coach, revealed his status and said “They put him on an IV drip and he was feeling well enough to travel with us today, which is good. It’s something he’s had before in the past. It’s normally taken a day or two for it to settle down. Hopefully, that’s the case and there’s nothing more sinister than that.”
He further added “It’s very random and came out of the blue. I’m just glad he was discharged from hospital last night. He still doesn’t look great and he’s not 100 percent but he’s certainly feeling a lot better than he was and I’m sure he’s glad to be home.”

“[The doctors suggested] because he has had it in the past, he is prone to perhaps getting more episodes, but we’ll send him to some medical teams this week and see if there’s any other investigation that needs to happen.”
Coulter-Nile is scheduled to travel alongside the rest of the Australian squad for limited-overs series in India next Monday. Australia will play two T20 Internationals along with five-match One-Day International series against the Asian nation.
