Melbourne: Former Australian paceman Nathan Bracken has dragged Cricket Australia to court, claiming that he did not get enough support from the Board when he was struggling with a career-threatening knee injury.
Bracken had retired in January after missing the entire 2010 season due an injury to his right knee, needing three operations.
Bracken has demanded close to USD one million in wages, medical expenses and damages from Cricket Australia, a report in the Daily Telegraph said.
According to the report, the former swing bowler will argue that CA was negligent in allowing him to play with the injury, including two doctors and a physiotherapist who examined him on the claim.
Bracken was not in the Supreme Court as the case was briefly mentioned yesterday.
His barrister Richard O'Keefe asked the case be adjourned because CA had not complied with previous court orders to provide "medical records relating to the plaintiff".
CA has been given more time to produce the documents as the court set the next hearing on November 30.
