English cricket overhauls leadership, as executive leaves

LONDON (AP) -- The England and Wales Cricket Board says managing director Paul Downton has left his job as the national team's leadership is overhauled.

Downton's role has been under scrutiny after England exited the World Cup in the group stage last month, and because he has resisted the return of batsman Kevin Pietersen.

The ECB says "a new leadership appointment, focused on performance will now be created."
