London: Jan 12, 2013

England fast bowler Jade Dernbach and former Surrey skipper Rory Hamilton-Brown will appear in person as witnesses to give evidence at Tom Maynard’s inquest on February 26,2013.

Surrey player Tom Maynard, son of former England player Matthew, was found dead at the Railway tracks in west London on July 18 last year, a few hours after he was stopped by the police on suspicion of drunk driving near Wimbledon Park Station. He was found electrocuted after stepping on a live rail before being struck by the first tube train of the day early in the morning.

According to The Telegraph’s Nick Hoult, Dernbach and  Hamilton-Brown were among the last few people to have met Maynard before his death. They will be the only cricketers who will appear in person at Westminster Coroner’s Court.
