Turner International India VP and deputy GM – entertainment networks, South Asia Monica Tata said, “Instituted in 1999, Toon Cricket has successfully managed to create a combination of two Cs, Cartoons + Cricket, a winning formula for Indian kids and adults.

Reebok India Company executive director, marketing Sajid Shamim said, “We are all aware that kids have a constant desire for action. They are the ones who have sports on their mind most of the time, aspiring to be a leading sports star. To be at the game is the only thing on their mind and collaborating with Cartoon Network, we attempt to celebrate this spirit of the child, and support such kids in bringing them closer to their dream.”

Toon Cricket 2008 will be co-sponsored by Nutrine Maha Choco and Parle-G. McDonalds Happy Meal, Boomer, Parachute Starz, Zapak, Berger Paints and Kissan Ketchup are the associate sponsors.
