Aussie all-rounder Nathan Coulter-Nile says he will work hard to find a place in MI’s bowling attack.

Australia pacer Nathan Coulter-Nile has said he would strive hard to find a place in Mumbai Indians' world class bowling line up in the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) starting 19 September in United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Defending champions Mumbai Indians shelled out a staggering amount of Rs 8 crore to rope in Coulter-Nile during the auctions last year.

Coulter-Nile will be part of a seam attack that has the likes of Jasprit Bumrah, Mitchell McClenaghan, Trent Boult and all-rounder Hardik Pandya.

Coulter-Nile was part of Mumbai Indians in 2013 although he did not get to play many games back then as the team won its first IPL trophy and also went to win the Champions League T20.

"Last time I was here it was a great experience winning the IPL and the Champions League. It was an absolutely great team I was involved with then," Coulter-Nile said in a video shared by Mumbai Indians on their Twitter handle.

"Mumbai has got a world class bowling line up. Firstly I'm just trying to find my way into the team. I can bowl anywhere and maybe do a little bit of batting behind the likes of (Kieron) Pollard, Krunal and Hardik (Pandya). I like these wickets. These wickets suit my bowling. I trust my skills," he said.
