No doubt he returned as an improved bowler but he simply did not deserve to be dropped due to one bad match particularly when he came off a successful tour to India, IMHO. It appeared to me a case of scapegoating him for the loss just because he looks so **** when he's being hammered. The man had 160 wickets @ 28 at more than 4 wpm prior to the series and he really deserves more than one match of bad bowling to be dropped.
