Tom Maynard, Professional Cricket Batsman, Killed by London Train at Age 23

Fans are mourning England Lions cricketer Tom Maynard today, who died after being struck by a District Line train in London.

A British Transport Police spokesman told Sky Sports, “London Ambulance Service medics attended but the man, believed to be 23 years old, was pronounced dead at the scene.”

Maynard, son of former England opener Matthew Maynard, began his professional career in 2007 and continued to impress, helping guide Surrey to the CB 40 title and promotion back to Division One of the County Championship.

A Surrey game planned for Wednesday has been postponed. “Our thoughts at this awful time are with Tom’s family and friends and all those who were close to him,” said the team’s Chairman Richard Thompson.
