Star's warning after nightmare over

A former Scorcher, Coulter-Nile admitted to having “mixed feelings” about Perth being his target this weekend, but promised sentiment would not get in the way.

"I’m still good friends with a lot of them and I want a lot of them to do well, but I also want the Scorchers to lose every game they play,” the 33-year-old Australian T20 representative said.

“It’s a tough one. We’re going to have to try to find some form, Hopefully we can use our MCG experience and really take it to them.

“We do play really well at the MCG. We know the ground really well and `Maxi’ (Glenn Maxwell) skippers really well there.”
