And yeah he wanted it back very desparetely. It was evident in a match where he was a captain, he didn't declared the inning even when there was already huge lead on board. Just wanted to complete his double century and showcase someting to the selectors.
It is so late for him to change it completely but atleast he tune it in such a way that it had a least adverse impact. Because there is no doubt in anybody's mind about his talent. He is one of the most talented cricketer.
