Former Australia legspinner Stuart MacGill has reached an out-of-court agreement over a pay dispute with Cricket Australia.

MacGill originally launched his writ in January 2015, claiming that Cricket Australia had failed to pay him more than $1.6 million in match payments and prize money, and also claiming more than $984,000 in interest.

On Monday, MacGill had represented himself in the Victorian Supreme Court, where he had sought court-ordered mediation.

The two parties agreed to terms on Friday. Cricket Australia confirmed that the case had been dismissed but commented no further on the outcome.

MacGill played the last of his Tests in the West Indies in 2008; he announced his retirement during that tour.
