Under the headline “UAE folds for 102 in 33 overs as England puts up an all-round show to seal thumping victory” and a photo of Ed acknowledging the applause of the crowd, the report on the ICC website says: “UAE went in to its World Cup Group D opener against England having beaten it in one of the three games it played in a friendly series in the Emirates in December. However, England proved it was the more professional side when it comes to serious business by handing the hosts a thrashing at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium.”
