Arthur was sacked as coach two weeks before the start of this summer’s Ashes to be replaced by Darren Lehmann, under whom Australia have gone on to lose the first two Tests.
South African Arthur initiated legal proceedings against CA, and the tourists’ preparations for the second Test at Lord’s were rocked when leaked documents included his claims of racial discrimination and that captain Michael Clarke and all-rounder Shane Watson were at loggerheads.
However, on the eve of the third Test against England at Emirates Old Trafford which Australia must win to have any chance of regaining the urn CA revealed it has come to an amicable agreement with Arthur.
The statement read: “CA and Mickey Arthur are pleased to announce they have reached a confidential settlement. “Both Mickey and CA agree that it is unfortunate that the dispute was not settled prior to the issuing of legal proceedings.
Both parties agree that a resolution now is in the interests of the Australian cricket team and cricket generally in Australia. “CA appreciates the efforts that Mickey applied to his coaching role, and wishes him the very best in his future career.”
