Surrey cancel match as mark of respect to Maynard

As a mark of respect, Surrey's Friends Life Twenty20 game against the Hampshire Royals at the Kia Oval which was scheduled for Wednesday has been postponed.

Surrey chairman Richard Thompson said:

Our thoughts at this awful time are with Tom's family and friends and all those that were close to him.

Tom Maynard was a prodigiously talented young batsman who had made an incredible start to his career and was clearly destined for far greater things.

The impact Tom made in such a short period of time for Surrey CCC spoke for itself.

There is a profound sense of loss at the passing of Tom. To lose anybody at such a young age is an utterly senseless tragedy.
