Former Australia coach Mickey Arthur has reportedly hired a law firm in order to seek compensation after he was sacked by Cricket Australia (CA) last month, according to a report in ESPNCricinfo. His original contract was till the 2015 World Cup but Arthur was replaced by Darren Lehmann after being dismissed in June, prior to the ongoing Ashes.
On his return to Australia, Arthur has hired a team of lawyers to explore concerns about the manner of his exit. A report in the Australian media stated that Arthur received no notice of termination or any suggestion that he was in breach of contract.
Arthur was sacked on June 24 over what CA called failures of discipline, consistency of behaviour and accountability. He is believed to have been given three months' pay and is now pursuing a more significant amount.
