The family of the British cricketer who was murdered in this country on Sunday, is planning a memorial match in London to honour him.

West Indian cricket star Chris Gayle is among the players who will be invited to play in the match to remember Adrian St John, 22, who was shot dead on Sunday night.

Gayle founded the academy in London where St John captained the side and on Monday tweeted his sadness about the death.

A fundraising page set up in memory of St John who is an alumnae of Herts University cricket club, has raised over £6,000 in just 15 hours.

St. John was on holiday when he was killed.

Two men demanded he hand over cash and his mobile phone before reportedly firing a shot as he drove off. 

One man has been arrested following the incident.
