England pacer Onions hopeful about playing part in Ashes Down Under

England pacer Onions hopeful about playing part in Ashes Down UnderLondon, Aug. 4 : England fast bowler Graham Onions is still hopeful of playing a part in the Ashes series this winter.

Onions has not played since leaving the winter tour of Bangladesh with a back problem and more recently he has had to contend with a knee cartilage injury which required surgery.

The Sun quoted him as saying: "If I had no motivation and was just thinking ''how do I get myself ready for next season?'' then maybe I wouldn''t be training as hard as I am now.”

"Being a professional cricketer, you want to play against the best. I want to play against Australia and get the England shirt on, but first I''ve obviously got to get the Durham shirt back on,” he added.

He further said: "I just desperately want to play, that''s definitely at the back of my mind when I''m on the treadmill."

The 27-year-old has taken 28 wickets at an average fractionally over 31 in his eight Tests to date, which included 10 Australian scalps in three Tests last summer. (ANI)
