Another report suggested Tom Maynard was just under three times the drive-drive limit.
But all reports concluded alcohol would have heavily affected him.
Tests also suggested the Surrey cricketer could have been a daily user of cocaine and an occasional user of ecstasy.
The forensic pathologist at the inquest of Tom Maynard has said there was a smell of alcohol on the county cricketer's body.
The Surrey batsman was found to have almost four times the drink driving limit of alcohol in his body, plus cocaine.
Tom Maynard's father, the former England international Matthew Maynard, has said it is important his son is "remembered as a person as well as a cricketer" in a statement read at his inquest.
"He enjoyed socialising and to drink alcohol at the right times and to enjoy himself with the lads," Matthew Maynard added.
It was after a night of socialising that Tom Maynard abandoned his car after being spotted by police and was found on the train line at Wimbledon, south-west London.

"It's a cloud that has been hanging over," he added.
