Nottinghamshire First-Class Debut – 4 September 2018 v Yorkshire 

Chesterfield-born Slater settled quickly into his new environment after moving from Derbyshire in 2018, making a hundred on his home debut against Yorkshire.

The opener made his First-Class debut in 2013 and has scored over 5,000 runs at that level.

In 2021, Slater amassed 838 runs in the County Championship, including centuries against Derbyshire and Worcestershire, and 375 in the Royal London Cup, making him Notts' top socrer in both formats. 

Indeed, Slater's List A record stands comparison with the very best, with his average sitting at an impressive 55.72 from 44 matches.

2021 also saw the left-hander make his competetive bow in the Vitality Blast for Nottinghamshire, blazing 48 from 31 balls as the Outlaws overcame Leicestershire.
