A classy opening batsman and capable left-arm medium-paced change bowler, Robin Bynoe made his debut against Pakistan at Lahore in 1958-59 aged 18, and enjoyed a good tour, scoring over 500 runs. But on his return he all but disappeared from first-class cricket, playing eight matches for Barbados in the next six seasons. In 1965-66 he scored 251 runs at 62.75 , enough to win him a place on the tour to India, but he was unable to repeat the successes of his first trip to the subcontinent, largely being undone by a frailty against spin. Thereafter he was not close to a call-up although he continued to score solidly for Barbados, averaging 70.00 in his final season in 1971-72.
The current Ranji season is proving to be a breakout one for Delhi's Rishabh Pant, who is aiming to make it big for his mentor, Tarak Sinha

Barbados is celebrating the 50th anniversary of its independence. Is this selection of Bajan players from over the years better than most Test teams?
