yes, he was struggling quite badly before the England series at home. Of course it doesn't help that he bowled to Indian and Lankan batsman on flat wickets at Mirpur in the tri series prior to series. but still, i was afraid we'd lost him for good. if you recall at that time, it was his head that the BC axe was set up for.

great to see him bounce back with a vengeance as you've mentioned. Home ENG series he did decently (for his old standards), don't remember specifics, but i do know that since then he hasn't had a bad series, and maybe only the odd poor match here or there.
