Wellington: Former West Indies Test cricketer Franklyn Rose was deported from New Zealand yesterday after being held in prison five weeks for overstaying a work visa.
The 44-year-old Rose, a fast bowler who played 19 Tests and 27 ODIs, had lived in New Zealand since 2011 when he was granted a work visa to coach at Auckland University Cricket Club.
His visa expired in 2012 and he worked as a volunteer cricket coach at Auckland schools before being given a deportation order in 2014.
Rose appeared in the Auckland District Court on March 4 and had since been held in Auckland's Mount Eden Prison. He left Auckland on a flight Tuesday to Jamaica when his last appeal to remain in New Zealand was dismissed by immigration minister Craig Foss.
