Durham head coach Jon Lewis has left the club after a “review of cricket operations” at the Division Two side.

It ends his 21-year association with the county, which began when he signed as an opener from Essex in 1997.

Lewis took charge at Durham during the 2013 season after Geoff Cook fell ill, leading them to the Championship title.
