Born in Barbados, Ryan Hinds has been a Barbadian and West Indian middle order, all rounder for some time now. In fact, as a teenager, he has had a lot of success playing for first class cricket and also the Youth World Cup. As a first class cricketer, he went on to scalp fifteen wickets in a match against Leeward Islands, and some years later in 2005-06 he entered the record books by becoming the first ever player from Barbados to score a hundred in each inning of a first class match – incidentally again, against the Leeward Islands.

However, even before this, he had made his debut for his country, Barbados in the 1998 Commonwealth Games, the only time cricket has ever been played in the Commonwealth Games. After this, he also went on to captain the West Indies team in the 2000 Youth World Cup. With the great West Indian opener Desmond Haynes describing him as having the best technique in the Caribbean, it was only natural that he got selected for the National side, which he did when he played his first ODI against Zimbabwe at Kandy. He scored an unbeaten 16 in a match that his team won with consummate ease. With the matches at Pakistan getting shifted to Sharjah, he made his Test debut at this unlikely venue against Pakistan, hitting a 62 and an unbeaten 9, yet his team lost.

In 2007, he was involved in a very feisty first class match where he showed his dissent as a captain. Fortunately for him, he was let off on technical grounds. However, since then he has taken a break from first class cricket citing mental exhaustion.
