Sydney: Former Australian pacer Nathan Bracken has accused Cricket Australia of negligence, arguing their doctors and lead physiotherapist can't provide "competent" medical advice to elite athletes.
According to a report appearing in Sydney Morning Herald, the former left-arm pacer has sued the governing body and three of its medical professionals claiming they failed to "investigate, diagnose and treat" his right knee injury suffered the day before an ODI against England in 2007.
"Lawyers for Cricket Australia and their doctors and physio are defending the allegations. The case, yet to go to hearing, was mentioned in the Supreme Court. Bracken was ordered to declare the size of damages he wants Cricket Australia to pay by February 22 and provide more details of his injuries," the paper stated.
