‘Stick to cricket’: Jim Wilson calls out Michael Slater’s ‘disgraceful’ attacks
Jim Wilson says Australian cricketer turned commentator Michael Slater should “stick to cricket” and stop throwing barbs at Prime Minister Scott Morrison.
Slater had accused Mr Morrison of “having blood on his hands” and failing to bring stranded Australians back home from India.
In a series of new tweets, he challenged the PM to a debate.
Amazing to smoke out the PM on a matter that is a human crisis. The panic, the fear of every Australian in India is real!! How about you take your private jet and come and witness dead bodies on the street!

“Someone needs to have a chat to cricket commentator Michael Slater,” Jim said.
“The former Test batsman has lost the plot with his rants on social media and his disgraceful attacks on the Prime Minister.
“I go back a long way with Michael Slater and we’ve always got on well.
“But Michael – I reckon stick to cricket mate unless you can add something that’s constructive.”
