Since all your shots were cropped, the focal lengths you used to get them are a guide and you shouldn't get anything shorter.

If you cropped because your original composition was bad, then yes, you should go with the same focal lengths. If you cropped all your shots uniformly to remove extraneous material, then you should compose tighter in the camera, and so you should get a lens with a longer focal length.

I suggest that you see if you can get a Sigma 50-150mm f/2.8. That should cover all your bases.
