London, May 8 (ANI): Debutant pacer Graham Onions was in dreamland on Thursday after his five-wicket haul for England against the West Indies at Lord's.

Onions took four wickets in seven balls yesterday and then admitted: "It's still sinking in. It is a day I'll never forget."His 5-38 stunned the Windies as England took control of the First Test, The Sun reports.The West Indies was dismissed for 152 in their first innings. England are in the lead by 186 runs.

"I know it is a cliché, but to get five wickets is a dream come true. There are people in the dressing room like Kevin Pietersen and Andrew Strauss who I never thought I'd play with. I'm having to pinch myself. When I went for about 15 runs in my first two overs, I thought, 'this Test cricket might be quite tough'. It was fantastic to get that first wicket - as you could see from my celebrations," Onions said. (ANI)
