Brief bio

Twitter - @BunnyOnions
Date of birth - 9 September 1982 Gateshead, Tyne and Wear
Durham First Class Debut - April 2004 v Durham MCCU (home)

After a first winter in many years spent predominantly at home, Graham Onions is hoping rest and recuperation will help continue his form towards the conclusion of 2015.

Following a slow start to the season largely down to a remodelled action, the seamer seemed to get better as the season progressed - so much so that only three other bowlers took more Division One wickets last term.

He did all that during a hectic benefit year as he raised money for The Special Care Baby Unit at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Gateshead, the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation, the PCA Benevolent Fund and Comrades of Children Overseas.

Last season's wickets also took him to a career tally of over 500 first-class wickets, including more than 400 for Durham alone.

Onions did appear in a Masters' T20 event in Dubai during the off-season and also played for the MCC in the annual curtain-raiser with County Championship winners, Yorkshire, taking four wickets as the MCC ran out winners.

His career with England was tarnished by unfortunate injuries but he is a 2007 Ashes winner and remains one of the most highly-rated and respected bowlers on the county circuit.
