Cricket Australia has settled a dispute with former test spin bowler Stuart MacGill over more than AU$800,000 (US$635,000) in salary and match payments he claimed he was owed after injury forced his retirement in 2008.

The 46-year-old MacGill agreed to mediation earlier this week ahead of a trial scheduled to start on Aug. 14 in Victoria state. The Australian Associated Press reported Friday that the parties had reached an agreement, but no details were released.

MacGill was initially seeking AU$2.6 million (US$2.06 million), including AU$1.6 million (US$1.27 million) in match payments, prize money and retainers, and nearly AU$1 million (US$800,000) in interest. He later amended his statement of claim to just over AU$800,000.

MacGill played 44 test matches for Australia and claimed 208 wickets. His last test was in 2008 on a tour of the West Indies.
