The Scorchers fast bowler had delivered the fifth ball of his final over late in the match against the Adelaide Strikers when he signalled that all was not well.

After consulting with Mitchell Marsh, he bowled the sixth ball, which was hit for six, before sinking to his haunches and sitting on the ground.

Scorchers physio said Coulter-Nile had suffered a "bad bout of vertigo".

"He was taken to hospital after the game as a precaution and will be monitored over the next few hours," Quinnell said on the BBL website.

Coulter-Nile's inclusion in Australia's squad for the tour came after he was left out of recent home limited overs internationals with back issues.
