Nathan Coulter-Nile, the Aussie quick, was taken to hospital on Saturday after a bout of vertigo during a Big Bash League match. The Perth Scorchers pacer sat on the ground holding his head after the 18th over of the Adelaide Strikers innings.

Nathan was asked to bowl 18th over and he started brilliantly by dismissing Wells on the first ball of his over and then conceded 5 runs off the next three deliveries. The next ball went for a boundary and it was then he felt uncomfortable.

Coulter-Nile, however, continued to bowl and was hit for a six on the final ball of his fourth over. He sat down on the ground after completing his over and was taken off the field. He was taken to the hospital after the match.

“Nathan was hit with a bad bout of vertigo at the end of his final bowling over during the game against the Adelaide Strikers. He was taken to hospital after the game as a precaution and will be monitored over the next few hours,” Perth Scorchers physio Chris Quinnell said.
