WATCH: Former England batsman Kevin Pietersen from a different league, says Graham Onions

Lancashire fast bowler tells Chris Whiteoak what was so special about KP, who retired from international cricket recently. He also thinks injury-prone Mark Woods now has a huge opportunity to succeed

It would be fair to say that had it not been for back problems, Graham Onions would have been a regular in the England cricket team. The 35-year-old fast bowler played nine Tests and four one-day internationals for his national side from 2009 to 2012 and showed much promise before his career was marred by injury-related issues.

Hence, the highest wicket-taker in the Durham county's history, who will begin his first season as a Lancashire player, had sound advice for former teammate Mark Wood.

Wood, eight years younger, is back in the England side after suffering from ankle injury. To find out what his view is on the paceman's career, and that of Kevin Pietersen - who retired from international cricket recently - watch his video interview by The National's Chris Whiteoak.
