Australia fast bowler Nathan Coulter-Nile has been ruled out of the second Test against West Indies due to a dislocated shoulder, with Scott Boland called up in his place.

Cricket Australia confirmed in a statement that its national selection panel has called uncapped 26-year-old Victorian paceman Boland into the squad for the Boxing Day Test at the MCG after Coulter-Nile hurt himself in Monday night's KFC Big Bash League game between the Perth Scorchers and Adelaide Strikers in Perth.

"The Scorchers' medical team confirmed that Nathan dislocated his right shoulder while fielding (on Monday) night," CA physiotherapist David Beakley said.

"Although the extent of the injury and rehabilitation period will not be fully known until we receive the results of scans later (on Tuesday), we can confirm that Nathan will not be available for the Boxing Day Test."
