Australian all-rounder Nathan Coulter-Nile underwent surgery on his left hamstring yesterday in Melbourne which will rule him out of contention for Australia’s one-day tri-series against Zimbabwe and South Africa in August.

Commenting on the surgery, Australian Team Physiotherapist Alex Kountouris said: “Nathan has had a recurring left hamstring tendon injury over the past four months and required surgery to repair the damaged tendon to give it the best chance of recovery.

“Nathan will now commence a rehabilitation program, however he is unlikely to be bowling again in time to be available for the ODI Tri-Series in Zimbabwe. We will take our time with Nathan’s recovery to ensure he is fully fit for the big summer of cricket ahead.”
