Onions ready for comeback

CRICKET: England seamer Graham Onions is ready to make an emotional return to the international fold today for the first time since he suffered a career-threatening injury two years go. The Durham paceman, who is vying with Steven Finn and Chris Tremlett to be selected for next week’s first Test against Pakistan following the tour-ending injury suffered by Tim Bresnan, said: “Being here and spending another three weeks out here with the best coaches and the best players is something in 2009 I didn’t really think I would do,” he said. “I did want to be part of the squad, to challenge myself and prove a point to Andy Flower that I’m good enough.”
