'I didn't enjoy cricket in the same way'
Rory Hamilton-Brown was once tipped for England but he announced his retirement at the weekend, aged 27, due to injury. Hamilton-Brown is now pursuing a career in finance and has spoken to Lawrence Booth, in the Daily Mail, about how the death of Tom Maynard in 2012 changed his life:
"I never enjoyed cricket after Tom died in the way I had before," Hamilton-Brown said. "Nowhere near as much. I can't answer why. I only know that I didn't enjoy cricket in the same way."
Does he still think about Tom? "I do. It's a difficult one. Everyone talks about a process afterwards, and for me it's still a process going forward. There are still a huge amount of unanswered questions in my mind."
