The England cricket team wore black armbands and held a minute's silence at today's One Day International against the West Indies, in tribute to Welsh cricketer Tom Maynard after his death yesterday at the age of 23.
Maynard, the son of former England and Glamorgan batsman Matthew Maynard, was found dead on the tracks near Wimbledon Park station in south-west London.
His club Surrey confirmed the news, releasing a statement that read: 'Surrey County Cricket Club and the England and Wales Cricket Board can confirm that batsman Tom Maynard has been confirmed dead by the Metropolitan Police.'
Cardiff-born Maynard rose through the ranks at Glamorgan before moving to Surrey last summer.
The big-hitting batsman was considered a rising star in the game and earned himself a place on the England Lions tour to Bangladesh and Sri Lanka at the start of this year.
Former England captains Andrew Flintoff and Michael Vaughan have taken to Twitter following Maynard's death.
Flintoff wrote: 'Tragic news that a great lad Tom Maynard is no longer with us. All my thoughts are with his family at this awful time.'
Vaughan said: 'Thoughts are with Matt Maynard and his family... words can't describe the terribly sad news that Tom Maynard has died aged 23'.
The IPPC have confirmed that they have been notified of an incident near to Wimbledon Park station in which the body of a man was found on the tracks.
