Durham’s Onions Takes 9 Wickets After Release From England Squad

Durham’s Graham Onions took 9-67, the best bowling figures of his career, and ran out Nottinghamshire batsman Luke Fletcher after being released from the England cricket squad today.

The pace bowler’s efforts at Trent Bridge helped dismiss Notts for 154, in reply to Durham’s 194. Durham closed on 27-0 to lead by 67 after the second day of the County Championship Division One match.

Onions wasn’t required for the England side playing South Africa in the final Test at Lord’s in London.
