SPI master reset

Hey, I cant find information regarding whether after resetting the SPI master device the SPI slave device (in this case receiving a constant stream) needs to reinitialise SPI,

Doing so has fixed an issue i was having where if my sensor board was reset i could no longer parse any data i was receiving on the slave device, I thought I had an issue with the packet parsing but I couldn't even see the start bytes when looking at the streaming data,

I guess I'm wondering if doing so was correct or if I've fixed a symptom not the problem.
