CRICKET: South African Mickey Arthur reaches settlement with Cricket Australia
2013-07-31 12:44:58 | (0 Comments)
Mickey Arthur has reached a settlement with Cricket Australia after the South African began legal proceedings over his dismissal as national coach.
The 45-year-old was sacked in June, just 16 days before the Ashes started.
The settlement is confidential but Arthur says he had "significantly reduced" his £2.4 million compensation claim.
Arthur, who took over as Australia coach in November 2011, had suggested there was a "deliberate campaign" against him after his sacking.
The latter stages of his tenure were affected by problems both on and off the field.
Four players were dropped for the third Test against India in March for failing to submit presentations on team strategy and Australia went on to lose the series 4-0.
Arthur was replaced by Darren Lehmann, whose side trail England 2-0 in the Ashes ahead of the third Test match, which starts at Old Trafford tomorrow.
