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.
