Lists of matches and more detailed statistics

Simon Hinds was a professional cricketer who had limited opportunities to represent British Guiana, because the Inter-Colonial Tournament was limited to amateurs only during his first class career. He made his first class debut for British Guiana against WC Shepherd's XI at Bourda in 1909, taking 4 for 35 in an innings in his second match, also against Shepherd's XI at Bourda. He then represented Shepherd's XI in two matches against Trinidad in Trinidad.

Hinds made his (first class) debut for the West Indies against England at Bourda in 1911, before West Indies played Test cricket.

After retiring from playing cricket Hinds became groundsman and is believed to be the person mainly responsible for getting the newly-acquired Queen's College playing fields fit for competitive cricket in 1936.
