Paceman Coulter-Nile on the rise: Hussey
By Jim Morton
18:49 AEST Thu Feb 7 2013

Mike Hussey has hailed Nathan Coulter-Nile as a Test-quality paceman after bowling Western Australia to a remarkable comeback victory over Sheffield Shield leaders Queensland at the Gabba.

Coulter-Nile on Thursday inspired the last-placed Warriors to a 99-run outright win over the Bulls which has resuscitated their Shield season.

The 25-year-old pace spearhead took a career-best 6-84 in a man-of-the-match performance to help dismiss the home side for 340 with 15 overs remaining on the final day.

Among the tall right-armer's wickets were five of the top six - including Bulls opener Greg Moller who produced an exceptional 120 in his return Shield match.

Rising WA left-arm spinner Ashton Agar also chipped in with 3-91 as Hussey stepped in for Adam Voges to captain the Warriors to their seventh outright win in an unbeaten past 10 seasons at the Gabba.

Shane Warne last week named Coulter-Nile among the country's best players in all three forms of the game and Hussey could not argue following nine-wicket match haul.

"He's our most influential player at the moment," the 79-Test batsman said. "I couldn't be more impressed with the way he's gone about it.

"He's definitely good enough to play for Australia.

"He's definitely got the skills and he's got the belief in himself and he's got the confidence to do well so I think if he was selected he wouldn't let anyone down."

Moller threatened to outlast the Warriors during rearguard partnerships with Chris Hartley (38) and skipper James Hopes (61) but the Bulls were left to lament a poor start to day four when they slumped to 4-109.

"Greg Moller was exceptional today but no one went with him in the tough times and that was disappointing," Hopes said.

It was a remarkable turnaround from the Warriors after they were routed for 111 on the opening day and Queensland cruised to 0-83 before suffering a 5-17 top-order collapse.

"It was an amazing comeback from where we were - we were in a low place there," Hussey admitted.

There's now a mere eight-point gap between leaders Queensland (22) and WA (14) with three rounds to play before the March 22-26 final.

"We're still taking the approach that if we win two of our last three games we should be fine," Hopes said.
