“I didn’t want to leave the game like this,” Graham Onions said of his retirement. But I have to listen to the medical staff and accept that I am doing it to protect my health and future. I have given everything completely and I can do it without any regrets. From being part of the Ashes-winning England team to being the top bowler for Durham’s first-class wicket, I could have achieved more than I had ever dreamed of. When I first started and had the good fortune to be a first-class cricketer for so many years.
