    Don't let Shortpitched forget that from the moment he has Ricky Ponting in his avatar, he can't change it for a whole year, starting this week it should be.

    EDIT - the avatar will last until the end of the Test series
    Hm...hard to see England collapsing against Taylor and Edwards, but all the same I could do with a change from Nemi. (She's been up there three and a half years or so, bar a quick spot of La Linea when Italy were playing France at the WC final.)

    Then again, I'm probably supporting the wrong team to join such a challenge

    I held my breath there, TBH, Hakon, when I saw you with last-post - I just don't think I could take a different avatar underneath Samuel_Vimes.

    I hope he's going to use different pics - no part of his challenge stated it'd be the same pic all year.

    I hope he can find some rather more smiley ones, myself, though your Hussey pic is about as good a one as I've ever seen of him. Good idea to get started early, too, as you can probably finish early (maybe even a month or so) and no-one'll notice.

    Two weeks it is

    I think it's a generous challenge tbh. Remember we have to win by at least 100 runs or five wickets, anything else is a victory for you

    The person who takes me up on the challenge will have to change theirs if he does.

    Both potential avatar changes to be cricket related, the choice of the Challenge winner and for a period of 1 month.
    So noone going for this as its been up for over a week?

    I must admit Im disappointed in you Richard. For someone who slags Harmison off all the time and believes he is a useless waste of space on the field, you would think you would back your words up by putting your avatar at stake.
    If I only just posted the above post, please wait 5 mins before replying as there will be edits

    I'd actually clean forgotten as I've been writing a fair few articles, as well as posting, the last week.

    Anyway - you're on. Given that I've already had Harmison I think it'd be pointless giving him to me again, but that's up to you of course. I'd be more than happy for you to have Dominic Cork in return. The thought of a month makes me cringe, TBH, but it's surprising how quick it goes usually.

    I hate the way people are constantly throwing avatar challenges at me, really. Feels rude to decline, and sometimes I genuinely fancy it - but my avatar is a vital part of my CWness and it just doesn't feel right seeing my posts without it.

    So in someway CW would cease to function without your avatar?

    Anyway, you're on. Probably at a big advantage if this rain doesnt cease.

    No, no, of course not - probably not well-phrased - I meant for me. Though it was touching to see our friend Matt79 once mention that "it's not the same without his funky multi-coloured avatar".

    Yeah, I got what you meant. I was just teasing you over the phrasing

    Well it looks on first impressions like we've got a pretty flat pitch in the First Test, but conversely it's England batting first so there might be a huge total which often upsets things.
