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.
