The sun is about to set on the year 2019. And, what a year it was for the cricketing folklore. It was another year of gobsmacking performances, heart-pumping humdingers, sensational one-man heists [Read Ben Stokes], damp squibs, and a plethora of heartwrenching moments [Read: India and New Zealand’s loss in the WC semi-final and final respectively].
The year-end gives a chance to not only us individuals but also the cricket teams, as a whole, to retrospect on the 12-months gone by, to learn from their mistakes as well as from their heists. It also gives them a chance to right the wrongs of the past by charting out New Year’s resolutions.
Here are the resolutions of top 10 International teams for the year 2020:
Australia – Win that elusive T20 World Cup Trophy
If you look down the Australian cabinet of trophies that the side has won during their proud cricketing history, you’ll find every single silverware one can think of. You’ll find multiple 50-over World Cups [Well! Five of them], plethora of multi-national tournament trophies, the coveted Ashes urn and what not!
But, one Trophy that you wouldn’t find in the cabinet is the T20 World Cup. The Aussies have never been a force to be reckoned with in T20Is; some would even say that they haven’t really taken the format seriously. They have come close to winning the title in 2007 and 2010 before being knocked out by India and England respectively.
But that could all change next year with the T20 World Cup set to be staged on home soil. Coach Justin Langer and the team management have vowed to take the shortest format of the game- for once- seriously, and their resolution heading into the new year would be to end the drought of the past 13 years.
