Melebourne - Cricket Australia has settled a dispute with former Test spin bowler Stuart MacGill over more than $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 August 14 in Victoria state.

The Australian Associated Press reported on Friday that the parties had reached an agreement, but no details were released.

MacGill was initially seeking $2.06 million, including $1.27 million in match payments, prize money and retainers.

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