    Bracken takes Cricket Australia to court

    Bracken was forced to retire from the game in January owing to the persistent knee injury.

    Sydney: Former Australian fast bowler Nathan Bracken has initiated legal action against Cricket Australia (CA), claiming that it did not protect him enough when he was battling a career-ending knee injury.

    Bracken missed the entire 2010 season due an injury to his right knee, needing three operations.

    Bracken was not present in the court on Tuesday as his case was mentioned for the second time, the Daily Telegraph reports.

    Bracken has demanded close to USD one million in wages, medical expenses and damages from Cricket Australia, the report said.

    His lawyer Richard O'Keefe asked the case to be adjourned because the CA had not met with the court orders to provide "medical records relating to the plaintiff", the paper added.

    CA has now been given time until November 30 to produce the required documents.

    Bracken was forced to retire from the game in January owing to the persistent knee injury.

    According to the report, the former swing bowler will argue that CA was negligent in allowing him to play with the injury, including two doctors and a physiotherapist who examined him on the claim.
