Collis King is confident that the visa issue that has left him separated from his British wife, Beverly, could be resolved by March.

That’s because Beverly is appearing before a British tribunal in Birmingham on February 15 that could pave the way for a smooth outcome.

“I am confident that a positive outcome is coming. This has been an ordeal and I am confident it will be resolved following the tribunal,” King said on Friday.

For several months, the former Barbados and West Indies batsman has been locked in a legal battle against Britain’s strict immigration laws that has left him separated from Beverly, and unable to return to England to play league cricket for Dunnington in Yorkshire. (MK)
