England seamer Jade Dernbach and former Surrey captain Rory Hamilton-Brown are to give evidence at the inquest of Tom Maynard at Westminster Coroners' Court on Tuesday, February 26. The pair are believed to have been among the last to have seen Maynard, their former Surrey team-mate, alive.

Maynard's body was found on the tracks near Wimbledon Park station at 5.10am on Monday, June 18, 2012. His car had been stopped by police at 4.15am after officers described it "being driven erratically on Arthur Road, SW19" after which the male driver "made off on foot." Maynard, the son of former England batsman and batting coach, Matthew Maynard, was 23.

Dernbach and Hamilton-Brown are the only cricketers called as witnesses. Hamilton-Brown, 25, relinquished the Surrey captaincy in August following a prolonged spell of compassionate leave. A school friend and housemate of Maynard, he subsequently left Surrey for a new start at Sussex. Dernbach, 26, continues to feature in England's T20 side.
