    Nathan Coulter-Nile has been sidelined with an "aggravation" of a previous stress fracture that curtails his Ashes dreams but could see him return to cricket at the back end of the summer.

    The 30-year-old Western Australia quick had played his first JLT Sheffield Shield match in more than two years in the opening round of this year's competition, bowling 15 overs against Tasmania. He was rested from the second round of the Shield competition, and instead bowled 16 overs in a day as captain of the WA XI that played a tour match against England.

    He reported significant soreness the day after that match finished, and it has been reported that scans showed a hot spot in his lower spine.

    Cricket Australia Sports Science and Sports Medicine Manager Alex Kountouris said: "Nathan experienced some pain in his back following the two-day tour match against England last week.

    "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 while we monitor him.

    "We expect he will have further scans over the next month which will determine when he can return to bowling."

    The fresh injury is a cruel blow to the likeable WA speedster who had been a leading contender on the fringe of Test selection for this summer's Magellan Ashes.

    Given the possibility that pace reinforcements could be needed during a five-Test Ashes series, the 30-year-old had loomed as one of the leading contenders to step up to the Australia side should injury strike one of Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood or Pat Cummins. Jackson Bird is Australia's first-choice back-up, and that quartet will train together in Brisbane next week in preparation for the first Ashes Test.

    Coulter-Nile's injury follows the long-term setback suffered by James Pattinson, who was ruled out of this summer in early October, and now faces spinal surgery in a last-ditch bid to fix a recurring stress fracture that threatens to end his Test career.

    Coulter-Nile had been player of the match in the opening JLT Sheffield Shield round last month, having taken 1-23 in nine overs and 3-18 in just six overs, as well as innings of 42 and 52 with the bat.

    But in a bid to ease him into the intense workload first-class cricket requires, he was rested from the second round of Shield cricket and instead captained a WA XI in a two-day tour match against England.

    In August, Coulter-Nile revealed he had been on the verge of walking away from Australian cricket to become a travelling T20 specialist before being selected in the ODI squad that toured India in September.

    "I lost my Australian contract and Greg Chappell came on as a selector (in a new role) and we all know he's got a big youth focus," Coulter-Nile told Seven West Media.

    "I was having a good IPL at the time so I thought I could probably just do this. I thought it might be time just to focus on forging a career in T20s.

    "On reflection and thinking about it and speaking to JL (Justin Langer) and blokes like that, I just thought I really want to play Test cricket.

    "That was my dream as a kid and it's still my dream now. The desire was there and JL said look there's 400-odd players who have ever played Test cricket for Australia. It's not something just to pass off lightly. After thinking about it for a good while I decided to give it another crack."

    He returned with a bang, and was easily Australia's best bowler on the tough tour of India, collecting 12 wickets having played every match of the tour. He then took two wickets in one JLT One-Day Cup appearance before adding four in the Shield.

    He was then slotted into the side to face England amid concerns about his workload.

    "He hasn't played back-to-back first class games since 2015," WA coach Justin Langer said after the first Shield round.

    "We are mindful of this and want to ensure his return to this level of cricket is managed appropriately to give him the best chance this season. He is coping pretty well in his return from injury but he is still building up to the levels required for consecutive first-class matches."

    The right-armer bowled 16 overs against England, including the wicket of former skipper Alastair Cook with his second ball. After initially pulling up well from the outing, he then reported soreness in the back and scans revealed the fresh injury.

    After a horror streak with various ailments, Coulter-Nile had been enjoying a rare extended run of good health. He was Australia's best bowler on their recent limited-overs tour of India, where he played every match.

    "Literally my goal this year, because I did think I'd be playing for Australia this early, is to have a good consistent year body wise for WA," Coulter-Nile told cricket.com.au after the India tour.

    "I thought if I could do that and was playing games back-to-back for WA, that I think the results would take care of themselves so now I guess it's just to try and perform and stay in the park."

    This is so sad to be honest. First time I saw him bowling I really liked his action, rhythm, approach, etc.

    For me over the years he managed to build more muscles and add couple of yards of speed to his bowling as well. I thought right now at age of 30 with back to full fitness we might get to see the best of him but again he is out injured.

    Its really sad to see fast bowlers break down this often. Had huge interest in Coulter-Nile and Pattinson but both succumb to injuries throughout their career. Fingers crossed Milne and Cummins don't get injured this often. We need fast bowlers in cricket world, the golden era of bowling was largely due to fast bowling exploits.

    Unfortunate for the guy, but don't think he is a Test bowler, even if he does make it to the team, he would be the 3rd seamer. Chad Sayers might get a look in now, someone who can move the ball off the surface.

    These Australian quicks need to bowl within themselves and not try to bowl flat out 150 kph or they'll all get injured.

    To avoid injuries, Coulter-Nile turns to yoga from banned Bancroft

    Nathan Coulter-Nile, the injury-prone Australia fast bowler has taken up yoga classes led by Cameron Bancroft to avoid another stress fracture in his lower back. Bancroft banned for nine months by Cricket Australia for his involvement in the ball tampering controversy earlier this year in March, undertook a yoga teaching course and has become to Coulter-Nile and others.

    “We always do a little bit but I’ve just tried to really rush into it head on this year and do it two to three times a week when I can,” Coulter-Nile said. “Obviously, when I’m away it’s a little bit harder. Just trying to do everything I can. I’ve got a really good management programme in place. I don’t bowl too much. I don’t do too much. Just really when I can, just play, rest up and play, give my back as much time as it can to recover.”

    “He (Bancroft) was good. I think he’s just done a course in Melbourne for the last two or three months,” Coulter-Nile said. “He was really good, really brought us down to earth.”

    Bancroft was one of the three punished by CA, with Steve Smith and David Warner being the other two – subjected to 12-month-long bans. While there have been clamours to reduce or lift their bans with the Australian side struggling, Coulter-Nile wasn’t too vocal about the topic.

    “I’ve got an opinion on everything. It doesn’t matter what my opinion is,” Coulter-Nile said. “They’re banned. They’re not here. Of course, we’d like them to play. I’d like everyone to play, but it is what it is.”

    Coulter-Nile, who last played an international match for Australia in October last year, has been hampered by stress fractures but following a successful recovery, the 31-year-old has been named in the ODI squad for the series against Australia. Following a 0-3 drubbing in the recently concluded T20Is against Pakistan in the UAE, Coulter Nile believes the practice sessions are coming along well and was confident of Australia batsmen getting themselves out of the rut.

    “Everyone always says it when you’re having a bit of a bad trot they say you’re hitting them well in the nets. I feel they haven’t been,” Coulter-Nile said. “I feel they’ve been struggling in the nets. But then they’ve got here and, I don’t know what it is, but in Australia they seem to fire.

    “I can personally say I hate bowling to Lynny and Finchy; I hate it, it’s scary in the games. And they should take that confidence into these games. If Hoff [Josh Hazlewood] and Starcy [Mitchell Starc] are scared bowling to them, I’m sure the South Africans are as well.”

    Nathan Coulter-Nile, who had a mixed ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, losing his spot in the playing XI midway through the tournament, admitted that it will be an uphill task for him to wear Australia‘s Baggy Green.

    Coulter-Nile, who turns 32 in October, accepts he may never add to his 37 first-class appearances.

    “I feel like it’s left me. It’s honestly just a bit hard for me. The body just doesn’t like it, doesn’t like backing up day after day. If I could see a way around it where I could improve my batting to the standard where I could sort of bat at No. 7 and bowl 10 overs a day then I’d think about it but that’s a long way off at the moment,” Coulter-Nile told Western Australian on Wednesday.

    With his red-ball dream over, Coulter-Nile, who leaves Perth Scorchers for Melbourne Stars after being them since the start of the Big Bash League, will continue to strive in the limited overs format and will seek help from his friends Adam Zampa, Marcus Stoinis and Peter Handscomb, all of whom were also part of Australia’s World Cup journey.

    “No other team really had three blokes like that that I get on with really well, that I could see myself spending a lot of time with over the summer,” Coulter-Nile said.

    He never envisaged leave Scorchers behind. “It was definitely the hardest decision of my career. It was a bit of a weird one. I’d never been off contract before. It came to the end of last season and I hadn’t heard anything from the Scorchers,” Coulter-Nile said.

    “By the time the Scorchers came up with what they had to offer I couldn’t refuse what the Stars had to offer me…[Perth] didn’t offer anywhere near it.”

    He added that the hardest person to tell of his decision was nine-year-old daughter Amelie. “She said she’s still going to barrack for the Scorchers!”

    Elaborating on his World Cup journey, Coulter-Nile said: “It was obviously the pinnacle of my career, being a white-ball cricketer. I built it up so much. When I got there, it was just another game of cricket. It was really fun, I really enjoyed it. Just disappointed we didn’t make it the whole way.”
