However, if Clarke scores more, i get to choose their avatar etc.

    note. Should either player get injured, and for this reason are forced to miss matches, the deal is off.
    I will take this.

    Obviously Clarke will play in more games as England will not get far but Im hoping he doesnt get many opportunities.

    If England don't lose on penalties, I'll change my avatar to Adam Sanford.

    If Australia win the World Cup, I'll change my avatar to a picture of myself, to be chosen by Dan Smith after I supply him with an array of choices.

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Number of games should be taken into consideration if it's more than 2 innings difference imo.

    The minnow challenge:
    If the Dutch batsmen fail to score a single half century between them in their matches against Australia and South Africa, I'll change my avatar to Duncan Fletcher and add to my signature the line: "England: the best cricket team by far". For a whole painful month.

    If Indian fast bowlers are MOM for any two or more matches in the tournament, I'll change my avatar to reflect how I wrong I was about them.

    If England make the semi finals, I'll change my sig to show how much of a genius Duncan Fletcher is and change my avatar to that of KP (ugh).

    If Kevin Pietersen is not the top run-scorer during the group stage, I'll change my avatar to Geraint Jones for a month.

    Fitness permitting?

    And which group? The preliminary group(s) or the proper, final-table group?
