Yesterday we bounced past the 1,000,000 view mark on our YouTube channel … so we thought today would be the right time to look back at our greatest YouTube hits over the past 21 months.
1. Darren Lehmann cries as he resigns – 110K views
What a hectic time for the SACricketmag.com team as Sandpapergate exploded at Newlands. The irony of this video was not lost on us when you look at number four on the list below!
2. Cameron Bancroft gets a send off – 95K views
That’s what you get from the crowd when you play ‘hide the sandpaper’, mate!
3. Cameron Bancroft and Steve Smith admit to ball tampering – 83K views
