Ex- Australian fast bowler Nathan Bracken is suing Cricket Australia, claiming negligence for failing to properly deal with a knee injury that “destroyed” his career. Bracken, who played 5 Tests and 116 ODIs for Australia, is arguing that Cricket Australia’s surgeons and lead physio therapist can’t provide “good” health advice to elite players.
News Limited newspapers claimed he was wanting around $ 1 million in lost income. He claims Cricket Australia neglected to “check out, diagnose and treat” a right knee injury suffered the day before a ODI game against English side in January 07.
In his document of claim, Nathan Bracken apparently declares that 2 physicians and a physio therapist working for Cricket Australia should’ve recognised from MRI scans that he necessary to have arthroscopic surgical treatment. He claims their failure to refer him for more check-up by a expert orthopaedic doctor and to restrict him from training and playing destroyed his career.
Cricket Australia confirmed law suit was under way but mentioned it couldn’t comment.
