Hinds was in and out of the West Indies side during the first half of the decade having announced himself on the international stage with 165 against Pakistan in his fourth Test.
He struggled during the 2000 tour of England but found fleeting success at the top of the order in Australia in 2000-01 before Chris Gayle took his place.
He again toured England in 2004 and was part of the side that surprised the world by winning the ICC Champions Trophy in September that year.
After falling out of favour with the West Indies selectors he signed for Derbyshire as a Kolpak player for the 2008 season.
However, his registration ran into difficulties and he did not appear for the county until June when the ECB accepted his Kolpak application.
He enjoyed a relatively successful season at the County Ground and extended his contract for 2009 with an option to remain in 2010.
Having failed to excel in 2009, though, he was released at the end of the campaign.
