News – Australian cricketer-turned-television commentator Michael Slater has been removed from a flight after getting into an argument while boarding at Sydney’s Domestic Airport.
- Michael Slater will keep his Cricket World Cup commentary job, despite his reported flight drama this week, the ICC announced.
- Slater had reportedly been set to return to former employer Channel 9 for its coverage of cricket’s most important international tournament — but the network has moved to explain the role Slater will play during the six week showpiece, beginning on May 30.
- The ICC global service, which will be produced by Star Sports, has amassed a small army of 50 international commentators for the event, including Slater and former Australian captain Michael Clarke.
- Slater’s World Cup role could be the former opener’s best chance to lockdown a commentary job for the upcoming Australian summer of cricket.
