Glamorgan pay Tom Maynard respects

GLAMORGAN'S Friends Life t20 match against the Worcestershire Royals tomorrow has been postponed as a mark of respect for Tom Maynard and his family.

Maynard died yesterday at around 5am after being hit by a London Underground train at Wimbledon Park.

It is thought that the Cardiff-born player, son of former England cricketer Matthew, may have been trying to avoid police at the time of his death.

The 23-year-old began his career at Glamorgan before leaving for Surrey in 2011.

"Glamorgan Cricket would like to thank both the England & Wales Cricket Board and Worcestershire County Cricket Club for their understanding and co-operation with this matter,’’ read a statement released by Glamorgan.

"The match has now been re-arranged and will take place at the SWALEC Stadium on Tuesday July 3.’’ Surrey's FriendsLife t20 game against the Hampshire Royals today had already been postponed.

The county's pace bowler Jade Dernbach this morning used Twitter to express his grief over the death of his friend.

"The day is not as bright without you here with us. Will love you always and forever brother.£RIPTom’’ Dernbach tweeted.

Dernbach has been withdrawn from the remainder of England's one day international series against the West Indies on compassionate grounds.
