After a weird 2020, the world aims to get back to normal life in 2021. The entire universe welcomed the New Year a few days ago. As always, some positive people started off their 2021 with a resolution. A resolution is nothing but the pledge that they take on the first day of the year to do some significant things that could bring a positive change in their life.
A majority of individuals take the resolution to achieve something that they have never accomplished in life. Cricketers are also no different. Although none of the cricketers have publicized their resolutions for 2021 so far, every cricketer would have planned something big for the New Year.
Some players, who are in the best form of their life, will try to continue in the same vein. Some have been excellent individually but their team has not performed at the big tournament. So, every cricketer would have a different resolution, and here’s a list of top 10 cricketers and what could be their New Year Resolutions.
1. Steve Smith – Ending Test century drought
Steve Smith started his career as a right-arm leg-spinner. There was a time when Smith batted at the number nine position for the Australian cricket team. However, he has worked on his batting over the last few years. Now, he is a part of the Fab 4 group of the modern era along with Virat Kohli, Joe Root, and Kane Williamson.
Smith won the award for the ICC Test Cricketer of the Decade recently. He batted with unmatched consistency from 2013 to 2019. But after Ashes 2019, Smith has not touched the 100-run mark even once. His last century came against the England cricket team at Old Trafford in September 2019.
After that match, Steve has featured in eight Test matches. Notably, a majority of them have happened in Australia. Still, Smith has struggled to register a century. He ended 2020 without a Test century to his name. Thus, the former Australian cricket team captain will be keen to end his Test century drought in 2021.
