Johannesburg, July 22 (ANI): Sacked Australian cricket coach Mickey Arthur said on Sunday that he was part of a deliberate campaign intended to overthrow him and his reputation had taken a blow because of his removal.
According to sport24, while returning to Perth after attending his mother's funeral in South Africa, Arthur said that he had no choice left but to take legal action against Cricket Australia after he was dismissed just days before the start of the Ashes.
Arthur said that after dismissal, he had received nothing in writing from Cricket Australia and his attempts to make direct contact at a senior level were futile.
Arthur was replaced by coach Darren Lehmann just before the start of the Ashes, in a big decision that rocked Australian cricket at that time. (ANI)
