I apologise for the waste of bandwidth, but such a slur cannot go
uncorrected.  From CEEFAX, seconds ago:

           ONE DAY INTERNATIONAL, Perth       1/3
           Mark Ealham blitzed Sri Lanka with a
           five-wicket haul as England stormed to
           a crushing 128-run victory.

           Ealham recorded the third-best one-day
           figures for England with a magnificent
           5-32 as the world champions were
           skittled for just 99.

           Earlier, Neil Fairbrother scored a
           superb unbeaten 81 as England reached
           227-7 off their 50 overs.

           Fairbrother led an England fightback
           after Sri Lankan debutant Ruchira
           Perera had taken three early wickets.
