Sydney - Paceman Nathan Coulter-Nile is set to miss Australia's upcoming limited overs tri-series in Zimbabwe as he recovers from a hamstring injury.

Coulter-Nile underwent surgery on Tuesday and team physiotherapist Alex Kountouris said he was not likely to be ready in time for the matches against South Africa and Zimbabwe.

"Nathan has had a recurring left hamstring tendon injury over the past four months and required surgery to repair the damaged tendon to give it the best chance of recovery," he told cricket.com.au

"Nathan will now commence a rehabilitation programme, however he is unlikely to be bowling again in time to be available for the ODI tri-series in Zimbabwe."
