WICRICNEWS – A former West Indies cricketer has been booted out of the country.

The Immigration Department has confirmed Franklyn Rose, who played 19 test matches for the West Indies was deported on a 6pm flight to Jamaica.

His legal representative Ramya Sathyanathan said a last minute request was sent to suspend the deportation pending consideration of Mr Rose’s humanitarian circumstances.

She says he suffered depression, which he claimed was made worse by being detained in Mount Eden Prison for the past five weeks.

Mr Rose was originally granted a work visa when he was offered a position as coach for the University of Auckland Cricket club, but hasn’t had a valid visa since 2012.

    • They need to start doing that in the US, Canada and the UK. Start sending these Lucians back home to work on their country instead of just sitting around pretending to know what going on in their own country while catching their royals illegally.
