Nathan Coulter-Nile, the Australian pacer, who suffered a bout of vertigo during Perth Scorchers’ BBL game against Adelaide Strikers in Adelaide, will undergo a series of tests. The paceman has been included in the squad for the forthcoming limited-overs tour of India.
The Western Australian pacer felt some pain after delivering the fifth ball of his final over. He was able to complete the over and eventually, walked off the field after receiving attention from the physio and doctor. He also visited the nearby hospital as a precautionary measure and is now set to undertake a string of tests.
“They put him on an IV drip and he was feeling well enough to travel with us today, which is good,” Scorchers coach Adam Voges said as the squad arrived back in Perth. “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.
“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 T20Is and five ODIs against the Asian nation.
