Graham Onions has been ruled out of contention for the final Investec Ashes Test after breaking a finger in Durham's recent YB40 match against Scotland.

Although it is far from certain Onions would have been included in the squad for The Oval the injury ends his chances of making a Test appearance this season. He was part of the 13 for his hometown Test at Chester-le-Street but did not make the cut for the final XI.

Onions has yet to play for England since the third Test against West Indies, at Edgbaston, last year which is also his sole cap since suffering a career-threatening back injury in 2010.

Onions broke the knuckle joint on the little finger of his right hand attempting to take a return catch during Sunday's match in Glasgow. Durham are hoping he will be fit for their next Championship match against Surrey which starts on August 22.

Ouch. Bad luck for Onions. Lets hope he gets a look-in when England tour Oz.

Unlucky for Onions. No doubt that he would have played at the Oval.

Get well soon Onions. Now, it is a very easy decision for England - Tremlett for Anderson.
