Tom Maynard dies in tube incident

  shares 131

Tom Maynard, the Surrey and England Lions batsman, has died aged 23. His body was found dead on the rails near Wimbledon Park tube station in south London around dawn on Monday morning; police say the incident is currently being treated as non-suspicious.

It was reported that Maynard had been pulled over by police while "driving erratically," less than an hour before his death. Metropolitan Police said that he had abandoned his black Mercedes and fled the scene.

A police statement said: "At approx 4.15am on Monday, officers stopped a vehicle after it was seen being driven erratically in Arthur Road, SW19. The male driver of the vehicle - a black Mercedes C250 - made off on foot. Officers were unable to locate the man. At approx 5.10am the body of a man fitting the same description was found on tracks near Wimbledon Park station."

British Transport Police officers were called to the line near Wimbledon Park London Underground station. A BTP statement said: "The incident was reported to BTP at 5.03am and was also attended by Metropolitan Police officers. London Ambulance Service medics attended but the man, believed to be 23 years old, was pronounced dead at the scene. The incident is currently being treated as non-suspicious."

It is believed that the driver on an early morning District Line train alerted the authorities after he witnessed a body on the track but was unable to stop.

As well as a Coroner's Report into Maynard's death, the Independent Police Complaints Commission is expected to receive a routine report on the circumstances, as it occured shortly after the involvement of police officers.

The news was broken to shocked England players as they arrived at Maynard's home ground of The Oval, where the flags were flying at half-mast ahead of the second ODI against West Indies on Tuesday.

A Surrey statement said: "Maynard was an incredibly talented young batsman. His future potential was unlimited, with experts both inside and outside the club predicting he would soon follow in the footsteps of his father Matthew by graduating to full England honours."

Surrey have postponed their Friends Life t20 game against the Hampshire Royals at the Oval on Wednesday, but England's ODI is expected to go ahead.

Tom Maynard was the son of Matthew Maynard, the former Glamorgan batsman who played Test and one-day cricket for England. Tom Maynard was regarded as one of the brightest talents in the game, a destructive middle-order batsman who was perfectly suited to Surrey's enterprising style of cricket. He had played in Surrey's FLt20 defeat by Kent at Beckenham on Sunday.

He left Glamorgan following the removal of his father as director of cricket in November 2010 and joined Surrey where Rory Hamilton-Brown, a former Millfield schoolmate, had been appointed the youngest captain in the country.

Tragedy has struck Surrey for the third time in 16 years. Ben Hollioake, an England allrounder of rich promise, was killed in a car crash in Australia in 2002 after driving back late at night from a family meal. Hollioake, 24, died instantly when his black Porsche 924 came off the road on a ramp in the early hours of the morning in Perth, Western Australia.

England's cricketers, who were contesting the second Test in Wellington, New Zealand, when hearing of Hollioake's death requested that the England flag be lowered to half-mast and wore black armbands.

Nearly six years earlier, on New Year's Day 1997, Graham Kersey, the county's wicketkeeper, died in a car accident near Brisbane. Adam Hollioake, Ben's brother and the Surrey captain at the time, dedicated their Benson and Hedges final success the following summer to the player.

From Australia, Adam Hollioake's tweet must have spoken for many when he wrote: "Wot is going on at Surrey? R we cursed or something? Graham Kersey, my bro, now this.... Treasure every moment with loved ones x."

    R. I. P. young lad, its always tragic when a young kid dies especially for his parents who would never be expecting to bury thier child. Same thing happened to a lad a few years back I knew up here in Dundee, he was coming home from a night out and died taking a shortcut over the tracks. How many tragic accidents like this have to keep happening, maybe less so now that it was someone well known.

  • Kak-mal_Khan on June 18, 2012, 18:51 GMT

    I remember Matthew Maynard being a very consistent Glamorgan batsman, so if Tom was anything like his old man then this is a massive loss to cricket, but even greater loss of a human life - RIP

  • KiwiPom on June 18, 2012, 18:48 GMT

    Just heard this news on an Australian sports programme. This is not the natural order of things is it? A person with a special gift is not meant to leave this planet at age 23. We think of those left behind who have recognised it and nurtured it, and then, just when it is about to come to fruition the young man is cut down. We know in our heart of hearts that the same applies to any 23 year old but when it happens to someone who is well known we are all genuinely shaken up. You try to put yourself in the shoes of his family and friends and find it impossible.

  • Thesonofg on June 18, 2012, 18:46 GMT

    I offer my family's sincere condolences to that of Tom Maynard. Sad news indeed, and the entire world cricket community has lost a great prospect. May his soul rest in peace.

  • balajik1968 on June 18, 2012, 18:05 GMT

    Sad, very sad. Always sad when someone dies young. The first such case I recall was Dhruv Pandove, an under-19 opener some 20 years back. Then Holioake, Runako Morton and now this.

  • sweetspot on June 18, 2012, 18:01 GMT

    Oh no! To be taken away when so young is such a loss for cricket, but it is almost selfish to think of the game when considering what the family must be going through. Sincere condolences. We hope we will get to the bottom of this rather unusual incident, at least for the sake of closure for his family. The universe has strange ways of taking away some special people way too prematurely. How trivial all cricketing matters seem at a time like this. May Tom Maynard's soul travel on in peace.

  • Rick777 on June 18, 2012, 17:56 GMT

  • delboy on June 18, 2012, 17:51 GMT

    BTW Umer Rashid, of Sussex county cricket club was 26 when he accidentally drowned in Grenada in 2002, the same year as Ben Hollioake's tragic accident.

  • 2.14istherunrate on June 18, 2012, 17:47 GMT

    Very sad. I thought he would go on to play for Engalnd sooner rather than later.I agree with Hollioake's sentiment a bit. We the fans will miss him.

    Tom Maynard came from a very special family, it is such a tragic loss at only 23 years old and 85 days, first Graham Kersey and Ben Hollioake now Tom, like Adam Hollioake tweeted 'R Surrey cursed.' Sad and dark day for the Maynard family and indeed the cricketing world.

  • anandr2205 on June 18, 2012, 15:31 GMT

    In reply to Parantap Ketan. It is indeed a heartbreaking news. The other cricketer who died at a young age was Ben Hollioake.

    Awful, devastating news. Tom was a star of the future. Such a waste. To all the Maynard family, deep and heartfelt condolences. Likewise to his friends at Surrey and Glamorgan and everywhere. His loss is deeply felt by those who only saw him play, how much deeper must be his loss for those who were close to him.

    "A first-class record of 2,384 runs in 48 matches at an average of 32.65 does not begin to communicate his potential with many good judges observing his displays in one-day cricket in particular and recognising a player of England potential." Come on david, a young man lost his life in a tragic accident and your concerned with his average and record? May he rest in peace!!

  • on June 18, 2012, 12:20 GMT

    Very sad.....He played here in Bangladesh with Sylhet Royals.

  • on June 18, 2012, 12:17 GMT

    This is quite unbelievable. I am deeply shocked. We have lost our brightest player Manjarul Islam Rana in a tragic bike accident also. That's how it was tragic. In the recent times we lost Runako Morton. It's unbearable. We should stop the road accident at any cost. May Allah bless him and give him peace in his after life.

    Absolutely terrible news and echo @Sir_Freddie_Flintoff's thoughts entirely. He sounded like a star in the making. As much as we all enjoy a bit of banter on here when a tragedy like this happens its great to see the whole cricketing community rally around his team and family.

  • AndyZaltzmannsHair on June 18, 2012, 11:58 GMT

    Quality young cricketer, and genuinely sad news. Used to follow and read about his father Matthew when he played at Glamorgan, and my sympathies go out to the Maynard family.

    Shocking news... Hearty condolences to Mr.Mathew Maynard and family.

  • SDHM on June 18, 2012, 11:28 GMT

    Awful news. I don't really know what to say, other than that English cricket has lost one of its most promising talents, but his family, friends and team-mates have lost so much more than that. My thoughts go out to them.

  • bladder on June 18, 2012, 11:25 GMT

    Sad news - He batted like his father - an idol of mine. As you've written, reminds one of Ben Hollioake - unfulfilled talent. He would have played for England. Commiserations to family - hope Matt can handle this. Regards, Sean.

    Sad news.Our thoughts are with the family.

    I'm shocked and saddened by this news. I can only hope that it was an accident.

  • on June 18, 2012, 11:15 GMT

    Unbelievably sad news. What a young man. 23 is no age, just starting to enjoy life. I send my sincerest condolences to his family, club and all others who are in mourning.

    Very, very sad news, Surrey will miss his services in the FLT20 competition. but thoughts as always to his family, who will be understandably distraught with the news.

    I am shocked and saddened with his early passing. This was a class young batsman who had yet to reach his potential. Taken away too soon; he was a loyal, talented and honest player. I offer my sincere condolences to the Maynard family, Tom's friends and Surrey CCC. A sad day for English Cricket.

    RIP - Tom Maynard 1989 - 2012
