Dimitri Mascarenhas has left his post of assistant head coach and bowling lead with Essex at the conclusion of his contract.

The ex-Hampshire and Essex all-rounder, 41, joined the Chelmsford-based side at the start of the 2018 season, but has opted not to renew his deal.

"Dimi is a highly sought-after coach with global experience," head coach Anthony McGrath told the club website.

"However, his departure allows us to re-evaluate the coaching set-up."
