The Independent Police Complaints Commission has referred the death of England prospect Tom Maynard back to the Metropolitan Police Service.
The IPCC, the police watchdog, were notified by the MPS after Maynard was hit by a London Underground train at Wimbledon Park at around 5am on Monday morning.
The 23-year-old Surrey batsman, son of former England cricketer Matthew, may have been trying to avoid police at the time of his death.
After investigating the incident, the IPCC have handed the case back to the MPS.
"The IPCC has assessed the referral from the Metropolitan Police Service regarding the death of a 23-year-old man," read an IPCC statement.
"The police evidence is that at 4.13am officers saw a car being driven erratically which they followed.
"The driver then decamped and after a short chase on foot, officers lost sight of him and had no further contact.
"The man appears to have been hit by a train at 5.04am.
"In the circumstances the IPCC has referred this matter back to the MPS.
"British Transport Police will prepare a file for the Coroner."Maynard's family released a statement describing the death of the England Lions player as "devastating".
"The Maynard family would like to thank everyone for the many messages of support following Tom's tragic death in London yesterday morning," read the statement.
"As you can appreciate, the news has come as a devastating blow and although the family is grateful for all the kind messages of sympathy, we would ask that we can be left to grieve in private at this very difficult and sad time for us."
Cricket is continuing to come to terms with the loss of a gifted batsman who was expected to gain full international recognition.
The Friends Life t20 match between the Welsh Dragons and the Worcestershire Royals on Wednesday has been postponed as a mark of respect for Maynard and his family.
Maynard began his career at Glamorgan before leaving for Surrey in 2011.
"Glamorgan Cricket would like to thank both the England & Wales Cricket Board and Worcestershire County Cricket Club for their understanding and co-operation with this matter," read a statement released by Glamorgan.
"The match has now been rearranged and will take place at the SWALEC Stadium on Tuesday July 3."
Surrey's FriendsLife t20 game against Hampshire had already been postponed.
The county's pace bowler Jade Dernbach used Twitter to express his grief over the death of his friend.
"The day is not as bright without you here with us. Will love you always and forever brother.#RIPTom" he tweeted.
Dernbach has been withdrawn from the remainder of England's one-day international series against the West Indies on compassionate grounds.
England one-day captain Alastair Cook spoke before the start of Tuesday's second NatWest Series match of the impact Maynard's death has had on the squad.
"It's been an incredibly sad 24 hours. It's hit all of us in this team quite hard," Cook told Sky Sports.
"All our thoughts and prayers are obviously with the Maynard family at this difficult time."
