The 74 Test great confirmed via a statement to Macquarie Radio that he had been in an "argument with two friends" and apologised to fellow passengers for the disruption.
Eyewitnesses have told Macquarie Radio Senior Digital Content Producer Nick Fergus about the incident at Sydney's Domestic Airport on Sunday afternoon.
Slater was also a commentator in the Indian Premier League 2019 and he came into news after he took a dig at Ambati Rayudu and said, even my 6-year old daughter would hit that better than him, referring to a shot Ambati mistimed.
Meanwhile, Michael Slater himself has admitted of being involved in a heated exchange with two women but refused that he had locked himself in the bathroom.
"What we're told by witnesses is Michael removed himself from the situation and went to the bathrooms of the plane".Читайте также: Brooks Koepka Eyeing Number 1 In The World Golf Rankings
The former cricketer, now a popular commentator, was asked to leave the plane before take-off, Qantas said. Crews over and again requested that he turn out and he won't.
"At that point the plane couldn't take off and it was being delayed further and further and crew were forced to call airport security who boarded the plane". As a result of the argument, the flight had to delay by 30 minutes, creating a huge uproar among the other passengers. Slater and the network have had a soured relationship as of late, with speculation mounting that the broadcaster is on the outs with Seven management due to an alleged reputation of being hard to work with.
Slater has been going through serious personal issues of late, with reports last week claiming Seven is on the verge of terminating his contract.
Slater played 74 tests and 42 one-day internationals for Australia before joining the Channel 9 cricket commentary team.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
