Nonetheless, his struggle to make the grade at county level continued, he found form only intermittently, though often explosively when he did so. Entrusted with bowling the final over with India needing 11 to win, he ran out Anil Kumble and bowled Javagal Srinath with successive balls to win the match, taking off his shirt in celebration, through both joy and personal relief. in early 2004 he was named as a Wisden Cricketer of the Year, having failed to make Wisden’s top 40 list in 2002. Freddie briefly returned home from the tour to see his son for the first time and did not miss any matches in the process.
