England pacer Graham Onions says he is excited with the prospect of making a comeback in the national side, for the fourth Test against Australia at Durham, which is also the home ground of the right-arm pacer.

England retained the Ashes after the third Test ended in a draw.

England gave Durham paceman Graham Onions the chance of playing the fourth Ashes Test on his Chester-le-Street home ground after including him in a 13-man squad on Monday.

Just hours after England had retained the Ashes courtesy of a rain-affected draw in the third Test at Old Trafford on Monday, the selectors unveiled their squad for the fourth match of the series, which starts at north-east county Durham's headquarters on Friday.
