Sydney: Dumped Australian cricket coach Mickey Arthur failed on Wednesday to reach a settlement with Cricket Australia over his abrupt sacking, but said he was confident a resolution will be found.

The South African is suing Cricket Australia for up to Aus$4 million (US$3.7 million) over his axeing, claiming there was a deliberate campaign against him and he had no choice but to take legal action.

"Although we didn't come to an outcome today, I'm pretty confident that there was enough goodwill in the room for us to continue talks next week," Arthur said after more than five hours of conciliation talks at Sydney's Fair Work Commission.
