Ryan O'Neal Hinds (born 17 February 1981) is a West Indian cricketer. He is a left-hand batsman and a slow left-arm orthodox bowler.

Hinds made his debut for Barbados during the 1998 Commonwealth Games, aged just 17. He then captained the West Indian Under-19 side during the 2000 Youth World Cup.

While still a twenty year-old he set a bowling record for Barbados by taking 15 wickets in a match against the Leeward Islands during the 2001 Busta Cup. His first innings figures of 9 for 68 were also a Barbados record. He went into the record books again in a game against the Leeward Islands in 2005/06 when he scored a century in both innings (168 and 150), becoming the first player for Barbados to do so.[1]

His Test debut came against Pakistan at Sharjah in 2001–02 during which he scored a half-century.

In February 2007 while captain of Barbados Hinds showed dissent to an umpiring decision during a bad tempered regional game against Trinidad and Tobago. He escaped a ban, for actions that WICB director Deryck Murray described as the worst behaviour he'd seen in a regional match, because the match report was submitted too late.[1] This along with other incidences of indiscipline have prompted his removal from the captaincy subsequent to which he announced his unavailability for the regional limited-overs championship.[2] It was revealed that Hinds is "mentally exhausted" and that he has sought treatment.[3]

In 2012 he was accused of raping a 28-year old woman and was arrested but shortly after released on bail.[4][5]
