Surrey's Maynard dies aged 23
Surrey have confirmed batsman Tom Maynard has died at the age of 23 after being struck by a London Underground train on Monday.
The promising England youngster had played for his county against Kent on Sunday in a Twenty20 match before the incident at Wimbledon station in the early hours of Monday morning. Maynard came through the ranks at Glamorgan before joining Surrey at the end of last season, leaving the Welsh county after his father Matthew left the team's set-up. Last week Maynard was disciplined by Surrey for being out late following a County Championship match with Sussex. Surrey have released a statement in which they described Maynard as "an incredibly talented young batsman", predicting he would have one day played for England, like his father had done. Surrey chairman Richard Thompson said: "Our thoughts at this awful time are with Tom's family and friends and all those that were close to him. "Tom Maynard was a prodigiously talented young batsman who had made an incredible start to his career and was clearly destined for far greater things. "The impact Tom made in such a short period of time for Surrey CCC spoke for itself. There is a profound sense of loss at the passing of Tom. To lose anybody at such a young age is an utterly senseless tragedy."
