James Anderson has praised Alastair Cook's resilience, admitting there were times he thought England's Ashes-winning skipper would step down in the face of harsh criticism.
Cook had his leadership skills attacked and his very place in the side questioned as both he and England toiled over a difficult 18-month period.
With many calling for Cook's head in the Test arena he was also dealt the blow of being ousted as one-day captain, but Anderson is delighted he has hit back in the best possible way, lifting the urn at Trent Bridge.
"I'll be honest, there were times when I thought Cooky was going to quit as captain," England's all-time leading wicket taker said in his column in the Sun.
"His leadership was criticised, even his personality was vilified. He was subjected to all manner of attacks. But he never lost the respect and support of his players and has now become only the third man after WG Grace and Mike Brearley to captain England to two Ashes successes at home."
Australia are four wickets down at tea in their second innings on the second day of the fourth Ashes test at Trent Bridge.
Chris Rogers brought up his half-century before being dismissed for 52 with Joe Root taking a stunning catch off a Ben Stokes corker.
Then, in the next over, David Warner brought up his fifty with a top-edged six but didn't last much longer than that after scooping a Stokes ball into the air for Stuart Broad to take a comfortable catch, the left-hander departing for 64.
Steven Smith went for five as Stokes returned the favour for Broad with a catch and Shaun Marsh managed just two after being caught at slip by Root from Stokes.
Australia are 138-4 and trail by 193 runs.
