    Avatar Challenges

    Yeah, the usual, avatar challenges specifically relating to the T20 WC.

    I'll put my avatar on the line on England reaching the semis. I'm nothing if I'm not optimistic

    I won't take yours, but I'll put up a challenge of my own.

    The Netherlands will play against England and Pakistan, and my bet is that they will win or nearly win at least one of those two matches. Specifically, I'll change my avatar to that of the taker's choice if the Dutch fail to do at least one of the following in at least one of the two matches:

    - win
    - tie (after 20, so if they then get thrashed in the super over I still win the bet)
    - lose because the opposition reached the target in the 20th over (or equivalent final over in case of shortened match)
    - lose by 1 or 2 wickets
    - lose by 5 or less runs (straight score or D/L)

    A rain draw is not a cop out for me, I will lose the bet if they get soundly beaten once and get a rain draw in the other.

    Any takers?

    Any takers? 2 weeks?

    Why do you suggest that :

    1. I have multiple accounts?
    2. I will inevitably be banned

    when I have not so far transgressed any rules of the forum, nor I have engaged in any trolling, slandering, discussion of illegal activities or deliberately abusing other members etc.

    You are welcome to quote any posts which I have made which you think have done that. Once and for all, I wish to put an end to this baseless allegation.

    Because you follow most of Precamb's language patterns with similar ideas.
