Wellington: Former West Indies Test cricketer Franklyn Rose was deported from New Zealand on Tuesday 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 one-day internationals, 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.
