Note - The below article is a work of fiction and the contents are imaginations of the writer. Any resemblance to real life incidents is purely coincidental.As soon as one recovers from the hangover of New Year's eve party, the first task that many people perform is to take a New Year's resolution. While some may think that taking New Year's resolution is a new thing but interestingly origin of this custom goes back to the times of Babylonians who are believed to be the pioneers of this tradition. Initially, people used to make a resolution as a promise to god for their betterment and since someone should be there to check the resolution one used to share it with others. With passage of time, everyone started to keep a resolution and today most people do take a resolution. It is another matter if they actually keep that promise. And like many other walks of life, the world of cricket also witnessed many resolutions. Here’s a look at few resolutions made by cricketers, umpires & cricket administrators from across the globe.

#11 AB de Villiers

AB is without a doubt, one of the finest batsmen of the modern era. His record both in all formats of the game proves that. But if there is one thing that continues to elude him despite all his individual success is glory in international competitions with his country.

So when he was asked about his New Year’s resolution, it was no surprise to see him say that “winning an ICC tournament with South Africa” as his resolution. With the World T20 in India just a few months away, AB is hoping to use all of his IPL experience to guide his country to glory, thereby cementing his cult status.
