Nathan Coulter-Nile (Australia) | Fast bowler Coulter-Nile returned with match-winning figures of 3/26 in the first T20I as he helped restrict India to a below-par total of just 126. He proved to be a thorn in the side of KL Rahul, dismissing the Indian opener in both matches. Coulter-Nile wasn’t too effective in the 2nd match though as Kohli smashed him for a hat-trick of sixes in the 16th over.
