AUCKLAND: Former West Indies cricketer Franklyn Rose, who was deported from New Zealand earlier this year, has claimed the country is not safe for international cricketers “especially if they are black”. Rose, who was the subject of a sex assault complaint while living in the country, told Television New Zealand on Saturday he was racially stereotyped by police. The sex assault investigation was eventually dropped and the 44-year-old was deported in April for overstaying his visa having spent his final weeks in prison.
