Mark Dobson has resigned as England women's head coach midway through the tour of Australia and New Zealand. Citing personal reasons, the ECB level-three coach apologised to the England team and returned home.

Surrey's Mark Lane, drafted in after assistant coach Vince Wells opted out of the tour for personal reasons as well, will take over on a temporary basis for the remainder of the tour.

Dobson, 40, was appointed coach in June 2007 and his first assignment was New Zealand's visit last August. He had a brief first-class career at Kent and Glamorgan and has been in the game as a coach ever since.
