Australia pace bowler Nathan Coulter-Nile has announced that he is eager to represent his country in the 2015 World Cup.

Coulter-Nile recently recovered from a hamstring injury he suffered earlier this year and is currently representing the Perth Scorchers in the ongoing Champions League Twenty20 (CLT20) in India.

Coulter-Nile’s hamstring injury couldn’t have come at a worse time since he was on the verge of cementing a permanent spot for himself in Australia’s limited overs squads. In addition to that, he was called up as a reserve for a couple of Tests during the last Ashes series against England, in which the Baggy Greens whitewashed their arch-rivals 5-0.

However, Coulter-Nile admitted that it will be extremely tough for him to regain his spot in Australia’s ODI squad.

“[The injury] Wasn’t great timing, I guess, but these things happen,” he told ESPNcricinfo. “I did miss a couple of tours but am glad to have recovered pretty quickly.

“I think there is just enough time. There is definitely enough time but whether or not I can force my way into that team, it’s gonna be tough. We have got plenty of good quicks, so it would be a tough ladder.”
