International career

Former West Indies cricketer Franklyn Rose deported from New Zealand

In the first innings in which he participated, he achieved figures of 6 for 100, but for Test after Test beyond this, his bowling disappointed in comparison, only picking up during a Test match in Durban, where he achieved figures of 7 for 84.


Rose also had his moments with the bat, including a match-turning 69 against Zimbabwe in Kingston during the 1999/2000 Cable and Wireless series. Coming in at 170 for 7, as West Indies replied to the visitors' 308, he and Jimmy Adams (101 n.o.) added a record 148 for the eighth wicket and the Windies eventually went on to win by 10 wickets. Rose was subsequently named Man-of-the-Series.

Later that year, Rose's aggressive instincts cost West Indies the second Test at Lord's when his attempts to shake up England's Dominic Cork with short-pitched bowling leaked valuable runs in a low-scoring game.

Although he was dropped for good shortly afterward at age 28, his final Test bowling average of 30.88 would prove to be the lowest of any West Indian pacer of his generation until Kemar Roach emerged nearly a decade later.

Domestic career

Rose has played for various more community-based outfits since departing from the international scene. One more prominent appointment was his recruitment for the 2004 season in England for Lashings Cricket Club. Rose, always a controversial figure in any cricketing scene, be it local, national or international, in turn fell out with equally controversial chairman of Lashings David Folb. Rose has also played in Sydney, Australia, and for the Chicago Tornadoes of the USA's Pro Cricket league.
