A specialist right-handed batsman as well as a very occasional bowler, "Slats" is generally known for his swashbuckling style of play and front-foot pull. Slater went on to open the batting with success in Test cricket, scoring 5,312 runs and 14 centuries at an average of 42.Slater's matchwinning 123 against England at Sydney in the 1998–99 Ashes series comprised 66.84 percent of his team's entire total. This remains the greatest proportion since Charles Bannerman made 165 not out in the very first test innings of all, which was 67.34 percent of his team's total.
