The batsmen of Australian team Nathan Coulter-Nile won’t be surprised if he is dropped by Australia for the next match with India despite winning the match with West Indies. This is because he returned wicketless in the last two matches in the world cup.
Nathan Coulter-Nile made the best score-92 in his career and made a century stand with the batsmen Steve Smith and made a score of 288 all out.
Coulter-Nile told the reporters: “No, I took none for 70. I’m not in the team to make runs, hopefully, the top order does that, so I wouldn’t be surprised if I got dropped for the next game.”
When asked about the chats with the smith, Coulter-Nile said: “He was just trying to keep me level-headed, just giving me the confidence to play my shots, telling me what he thought they were going to do and where the runs were going to come.”
“The only time I looked up and I thought ‘Jeez’ was when I was on about 90, I think. Then I started thinking about it,” he said.
“I broke my bat one of the shots, I didn’t want to change it, and maybe I should have done that. I didn’t think about the century. I just thought ‘jeez that’s a lot of runs’.
“It was a pull shot off Sheldon Cottrell, it actually hit the middle but split down the bottom, I didn’t want to swap it.”
Coulter-Nile had back problem in the recent years due to which he couldn’t bowl which made him work on the batting with Western Australia opener Liam Davis.
