Profile

Another pace bowler off the Durham production line - brisk and tenacious with a name to delight headline writers - Graham Onions had become a key part of the England team before suffering a career-threatening injury in early 2010. England's interest seemed to wane as a result, even though Onions' form in county cricket remained masterful. Intimations were that his pace was slightly reduced and that he prospered on responsive Riverside pitches. Nobody was presented more often as an example of England's alleged lack of regard for achievements in the county game.
