West Indies cricketer Ryan Hinds charged with rape
Bridgetown (Barbados): West Indies cricketer Ryan Hinds has been charged with rape but was released on bail after appearing before a magistrate court here.
The 31-year-old, who played 15 Tests and 14 ODIs for the West Indies team, is accused of raping a 28-year-old woman last month.
The all-rounder, whose last Test appearance for the national team was in 2009 against Bangladesh, is a former captain of the Barbados team.
Hinds appeared in the District `B` Magistrate Laurie-Ann Smith-Bovell and was granted 7,500 Barabdos dollars bail with a surety, the media here reported.
"He was also ordered to surrender his passport and must report to the Holetown Police Station once per week as the other conditions of his bail," it added.
Hinds will reappear in court on July 5. In a moderately successful international career, Hinds scored 505 Test and 101 ODI runs. His left-arm spin fetched him 13 wickets in Tests and six scalps in the one-dayers.
