A group of cyclists, riding in memory of Welsh cricketer Tom Maynard, have arrived at the Oval cricket ground in London this afternoon, after a 150-mile journey from Cardiff.

They set off from the SWALEC Stadium, home of Tom's former club Glamorgan, yesterday. Their arrival at the Oval, home of his last club, Surrey, precedes a Clydesdale Bank 40 match between the two counties this afternoon.

The proceeds from the match, as well as the ride, will go towards the Tom Maynard Trust. He was 23, when he died after going onto a London underground line in June. An inquest into his death has been opened and adjourned.
