Australian speedster Mitchell Starc has reportedly submitted video recording of a Test match to support his $1.53 million insurance claim suite on account of an in-match injury that had forced his exit from the Indian Premier League 2018.
Starc were to represent Kolkata Knight Riders in the IPL 2018, but he had to miss the ₹ 9.8 crore contract after having suffered an injury during the second Test against South Africa.
According to Sydney Morning Herald, Starc has provided video footage of the match in support of his claim. Starc has filed a lawsuit in the Victorian County Court in April last year.
Starc has provided video footage from the second Test against South Africa in 2018 to prove that he got injured and as a result, deserves an insurance pay-out for losing the IPL deal with KKR.
