The 2016 season of the Indian Premier League noticed Sunrisers Hyderabad being crowned as the new champions. No one at the start of the tournament would have even guessed that the Hyderabad outfit could go on to win the competition,
Nathan Coulter-Nile is one of the most promising prospects to emerge from Western Australia in recent years. The right-arm pacer is an integral part of the Perth Scorchers’ attack in the Big Bash League and was part of the Mumbai Indians squad in 2013.
While he’s primarily known for his bowling skills, he also possesses an ability to hit big and score crucial runs down the order. Inducted in to the DD squad in 2015 he picked up 15 wickets in the season and was the joint highest wicket-taker for the team along with Imran Tahir.

A handy lower-order batsman, he even has a Test century to his name. The Mumbai Indians signed him at the IPL Player Auction 2012 and was key to their fortunes in the 2013 season, claiming 24 wickets in 17 matches as they won the trophy.
