MacGill settles pay dispute with Cricket Australia

21 Juillet 2017

Stuart MacGill has settled a dispute with Cricket Australia (CA) over his Dollars 2.6 million claim in salary and match payments after injury forced the former Australian leg-spinner's retirement in 2008.

The cricketer was also suing for more than $900,000 in interest. The Australian Associated Press reported Friday that the parties had reached an agreement, but no details were released.

MacGill played 44 test matches for Australia and claimed 208 wickets. He played the last of his Tests on the 2008 tour of the West Indies.

Punjab court summons CM Amarinder Singh in IT case
A court on Thursday adjourned the foreign asset case against Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh till September 18. It was reported that earlier also a summons was issued against the Punjab CM, but it could not be served.

The former leg-spinner, in his writ lodged in January 2015, said he had endured several injuries through his career, including an ankle bone fracture, cartilage damage to his right knee, nerve damage affecting both hands and wrists, bone fracture to right elbow, finger pain in both hands and rotator cuff displacement in his right bowling shoulder.

The $2.6 million claim came from $1.6 million in lost match payments and prizemoney, and nearly $1 million in interest, plus costs.

Earlier, Stuart MacGill was advised by a Victorian Supreme Court judge to obtain legal advice after he appeared nervous and failed to articulate his case against Cricket Australia.
