Graham Onions – Professional

Former England cricketer Graham Onions played for Lancashire and England as a fast bowler and a right-hand tail-end batsman. Born in Gateshead, Mr Onions was a very keen badminton player, playing for England at U15 level. Mr Onions made his Test debut at Lord’s, taking seven wickets in that match and three more wickets in the match that followed. He represented England in nine Tests matches and four ODIs. He played nine Tests for England, taking 32 wickets at an average of 29.90 after making his debut in 2009. He played in the 2009 Ashes series, and a 4-58 in his Ashes debut helped England level the series. Later that year, courageous, last-wicket heroics with the bat to deny South Africa victories in two away Tests peeled a new layer of fame. Mr Onions played 192 first-class matches during his career, taking 723 wickets – including 31 five-wicket hauls.
