Australia fast bowler Nathan Coulter-Nile is fit and raring to go for Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020. Mumbai Indians bought Coulter-Nile in the IPL 2020 auction for a whooping amount of INR 8 crore. And the Australian is set to work hard to find a place in the Mumbai Indians bowling line-up.
It will be second stint for Coulter Nile in the IPL. He had previously featured for the side in 2013 when they bagged the IPL and Champions League. Although Coulter-Nile was not a regular in that season, he wishes to strike hard, to make it into the playing XI in the upcoming season.
“Last time I was here it was a great experience winning the IPL and the Champions League. It was an absolutely great team I was involved with then,” Coulter-Nile said in a video shared by Mumbai Indians on their Twitter handle.
“Mumbai has got a world-class bowling line up. Firstly I’m just trying to find my way into the team. I can bowl anywhere and maybe do a little bit of batting behind the likes of (Kieron) Pollard, Krunal, and Hardik (Pandya). I like these wickets. These wickets suit my bowling. I trust my skills,” he said.
Mumbai Indians have bowling line-up which consists of Jasprit Bumrah, Mitchell McClenaghan, Trent Boult and all-rounder Hardik Pandya.
Mumbai Indians have been the most successful team in IPL history. They have clinched the IPL title four times under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma. CSK are the second most successful team with three titles to their name.
Coulter-Nile has featured in 32 ODIs and 28 T20I for Australia. He has picked up 52 wickets in the ODIs and 34 in the shortest format of the game.
