    I will put the MOTS as my avatar if India win the ODI series in the Windies.
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    I do, however, wish to add that if, at any stage during live matches of the series, either McGrath or Warne get injured or are not playing, I am able to, at my discretion, withdraw this bet. That's the only condition.

    This bet still standing.

    Digging this up after the success of the Ashes and WC avatar challenge threads.

    I'll get the ball-a-rolling.

    If England fail to win the First Test V West Indies by more than 100 runs or 5 wickets, I shall change my avatar to whatever the first non-Englishman to respond chooses.

    EDIT - the avatar will last until the end of the Test series

    Haha. Yo mad.

    And I don't see the point in these nothing-to-gain forfeits (a la Hingston's original that started the whole movement), TBH. The real fun is in having a bet with another member, where if this happens or that doesn't happen one person changes the other's avatar, and vice-versa if the inverse.

    What do you gain by saying "if The Earth becomes The Moon I'll eat green cheese"? The "Ha! See, I told you it wouldn't!" comment when it doesn't?

    If someone could explain to me the thrill of this one-person-betting-against-event thing I'd appreciate it.

    And this is presuming you're laying-down a I-get-to-change-yours-otherwise?
