Australian bowler Mitchell Starc filed a lawsuit last week against the insurer of his deal to play for Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). He has claimed to get back 1.53 Million dollars which he lost out on after failing to make an appearance in the 2018 edition of the IPL.
Starc, who was a standout amongst the most looked after bowlers in the 2018 auction, had the second-best deal among Australian players after Chris Lynn.
The left arm pacer could not play in the 2018 edition of the IPL after he harmed himself during the Test series against South Africa.
Court records demonstrate that an arrangement would guarantee Starc would be paid 1.53 million dollars advantage on the off chance that he missed the IPL through damage. The writ states that Starc paid a premium of 97,920 dollars to be covered between February 27 and March 31 in 2018, when the tournament ended.
