Former England cricketer, Michael Carberry is all set to take legal actions against his county side Leicestershire after he was sacked from the captaincy due to a gloomy performance at the start of the season.

Leicestershire issued one statement last month that stated Carberry had been dropped as captain following an investigation, which had taken place in the wake of a one-day thrashing at the hands of Nottinghamshire.

The statement from the County read, "Following a review of the early part of the season by (head coach) Paul Nixon, a decision has been made to relieve Michael Carberry of the captaincy.

"Paul Horton will take over as club captain with immediate effect.

"The club will not be making any further comment."

As per the reports of Daily Mail, Michael Carberry was supposed to stay with the team for their next match against Derbyshire until he was sacked from the captaincy by a board member that it would be improper for him to do so.

The report suggested Carberry's legal representative will approach Leicestershire for the matter on Monday claiming he had been given "no prior warning" that he was in danger of losing the captaincy.

Michael Carberry has played 12 International matches for England cricket team with having scored runs at an average of 28 in ODI cricket. Carberry had only joined Leicestershire last year on a two-year deal after playing for eleven months with Hampshire.
