Australian cricket great Michael Slater has been hit by new charges of attack.

The 52-year-old former star is said to have assaulted a 36-year-old man on July 18 at a hospital in Frenchs Forest on Sydney’s northern beaches.

He faces two new counts of habitual assault and one count of attempting to stalk or harass with intent to cause fear of physical or mental harm.

Slater played 74 Tests and 42 one-day internationals for Australia between 1993 and 2001 before moving to television commentary.

He was removed from Channel 7’s cricket coverage last October after berating Prime Minister Scott Morrison on Twitter while in the Maldives when the Indian Premier League was suspended due to the pandemic.

The high-profile cricketer will appear before the Manly Local Court after police indicted him on Wednesday.

He was in the same court earlier this year when the domestic violence charges against him were dismissed on the condition that it be heard.
