Starc sues insurer over IPL payout

Australia left-arm pacer Mitchell Starc has sought legal remedy to get US$1.53 million from his insurer over an injury payout for his IPL contract after he failed to turn out for his franchise Kolkata Knight Riders in a single game last year.

According to a report in the 'Sydney Morning Herald', Starc, who didn't figure in any game for KKR last year after getting injured in the Test series against South Africa, has filed a lawsuit in the Victorian County Court last week against the insurers of his lucrative IPL deal.

Starc was one of the most sought-after Australian players at the 2018 IPL auction when KKR snapped him up for US$1.8 million, a price tag which was bettered only by hard-hitting Chris Lynn, who went for US$1.86 million.

But Starc didn't feature in the world's richest T20 tournament last year after suffering a calf injury in the Test series against South Africa, which was marred by the infamous ball-tampering incident involving Steve Smith, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft.
