Australia pacer Mitchell Starc has filed a lawsuit against the insurers of his Indian Premier League (IPL) deal to get his 1.53 million dollars paid out after he suffered an injury in the Test series against South Africa last year.
The veteran pacer filed the lawsuit in the Victorian County Court last week. Starc, one of the most sought-after Australian pacer, has had a dramatic time in the IPL, according to The Sydney Morning Herald.
According to the report, Starc, represented by Mills Oakley Lawyers, is suing a syndicate of Lloyd's of London, the long-running insurance market where coverage can be bought for unique circumstances that traditional insurers don't insure against.
The writ states Starc paid a premium of 97,920 dollars to be covered between February 27 and March 31 in 2018, when the tournament ended.
On March 10, Starc claims he started feeling pain in his right calf while bowling during the second Test in Port Elizabeth.
