Franklyn Albert Rose (born 1 February 1972) is a former West Indian cricketer. He is a right-handed batsman and a fast right-arm bowler who possesses a lot of power with his full-length outswing.

International career

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 hit a match-turning 69 against Zimbabwe in 2000. Coming in at 170 for 7, in reply to the visitors’ 308, he and Jimmy Adams (101 n.o.) added a record 148 for the eighth wicket in the Windies 10-wicket victory. He was subsequently named Man-of-the-Series.

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

Although he was dropped for good at age 28, his final Test bowling average of 30.88 stood as 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.
