Profile

Keith Slater was a versatile allrounder who could bowl either offspin or medium-pace seam as the occasion demanded. His batting was good enough that he opened for Western Australia towards the end of his career. Serious doubts over his action probably limited his international chances, his one Test coming against England in 1964-65 where he took 2 for 101 and made 1. That was his last season, and it was an eventful one as he was also called for throwing while playing against NSW at Sydney. Slater was also an accomplished Aussie Rules player for Swan Districts and Subiaco.
