And it’s 2018! The New Year celebrations have kicked off and we here at Hindustan Times wish you the same. If you’re a cricket buff, don’t worry, there’s plenty of action that up for grabs in the coming year.

The year gone by had plenty to offer and the upcoming one shouldn’t be a disappointing one as well.

Cristiano Ronaldo also took to Instagram to wish his followers, posting a picture of him and his girlfriend.
