Slater, 52, was charged by the New South Wales state police last October for stalking and intimidation of his ex-partner. The cricketer was due to appear before Waverley Local Court on Wednesday. He appealed for the charges to be dealt with under the Mental Health Act.

The prosecutor told the court that Michael Slater is detained by police and paramedics. He was taken to the mental health unit. He is currently being treated at Sydney’s Northern Beaches Hospital.
