Onions is an old-fashioned seam bowler with a strong action that generates bounce and movement.

After impressive early-season form with Durham, he was handed his England chance against West Indies in 2009.

Bagged five wickets on Test debut and 10 in all in the two-match series as England crushed the men from the Caribbean.

That impressive start coupled with further success for Durham saw Onions named in England's Ashes squad in June 2009.

He played his part in that victorious series, taking two wickets in two balls at the start of day two of the Edgbaston Test.

On to South Africa and Onions became a cult hero for his heroics with the bat. Twice the man nicknamed 'Bunny' proved anything but as he repelled the Proteas' fierce pace attack to ensure England claimed draws in Centurion and Cape Town.

His career has been blighted by injury thereafter. A stress fracture in his back kept him out of action for over two years, however he appears back to his best.

A wicket-taking machine in county cricket, Onions will be hopeful of a call-up when Ashes cricket arrives at Durham for the first time in August.
