Nathan Coulter-Nile    (River)    Bowler    Perth Scorchers
Coulter-Nile is on track to start the Australian Big Bash League season after recovering from a stress fracture in his back, the West Australian reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Coulter-Nile has been sidelined since hurting his back shortly before the start of the IPL season.
Mohammed Shami    Bowler    India
Shami will be on India's squad for the first of three Test matches against England starting August 1, the India Times reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Shami missed most of the IPL season and failed a fitness test to play for India against Afghanistan in June. It sounds like he's back to full speed, but he may be rusty in his first outing.
Josh Hazlewood    Bowler    Australia
Hazlewood (back) will have a scan next week that may allow him to begin bowling again, Cricket Australia reports. "We'll wait to get all the information in early August and then we'll go from there," he told News Corp. "It's coming along nicely. Hopefully I'll get to the UAE."

Fantasy Analysis

Hazlewood missed Australia's tour of England that began in June with the injury. He's trying to make it back for Australia's tour of the UAE in October.
Mitchell Starc    Bowler    Australia
Starc (leg) returned to bowling on Wednesday and appears on track to return for Australia's tour of the UAE to face Pakistan in October, Cricket Australia reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Starc did not play in the IPL due to the injury. While this is positive news, it's not certain he'll be ready to return in October.
Pat Cummins    (Cummo)    Bowler    Australia
Cummins (back) now questions whether he'll be able to return to full speed ahead of Australia's tour of the UAE to face Pakistan in October. "There's no guarantees with injury, especially a stress fracture," he told cricket.com.au. "It's something you have to be really, really careful with."

Fantasy Analysis

Cummins said a few weeks ago he hoped to begin bowling again in July, but it sounds like that may have been an optimistic projection. His return from a back injury may not happen until later in the fall or early next year.
