The Australian all-rounder, Nathan Coulter-Nile has been struggling from vertigo since the Big Bash League (BBL). His vertigo attack made him go through IV drip in the hospital last month. Nathan has joined his Aussie squad in Dubai for the ODI series against Pakistan after leaving midway for Australia for the birth of his second child during the India tour. The ODI series between Australia and Pakistan is going to go underway on Friday and the all-rounder wants to concentrate on his game so that he could make it for a spot in the Australian squad touring to England and Wales for the ICC World Cup 2019.
“I saw a vestibular physio and an ear, nose and throat specialist but they didn’t really give me much,” said Coulter-Nile.
I didn’t get a chance to investigate it further says Coulter-Nile
Coulter-Nile while talking to the reporters told that he has vertigo and still left for India tour a week late. He further said that he will complete the series in the UAE against Pakistan and then go home and try to know the cause of why it happened and find the necessary medication as well.
“I didn’t get a chance (to investigate it further). I had the vertigo and left for India a week later. So, I’ll get through this series, go home and try and really – I want to know the cause of why it happened. Because if I can stop it I will,” said Coulter-Nile.
You’re driven to play every World Cup says Coulter-Nile
The all-rounder, Coulter-Nile‘s career has suffered major setbacks due to his injuries and that also includes the hamstring injury that made him sit out of the World Cup 2015. Eventually Australia went forth to win the title and bring the World Cup home. However Coulter-Nile says that his exclusion from the World Cup 2015 totally shattered him but he has been trying to train better to make it up for this World Cup.
“You’re driven to play every World Cup, and not just play it but win it. The World Cup is always going to be spoken about. It’s around the corner, people are vying for selection. But we’re just focused on winning this series like we won the last series. Hopefully we go into the World Cup with some form and we can play well,” says Coulter-Nile.
