Vivek Krishnani, Director, Marketing, Cartoon Network, said, "An integrated on-air, on-line, on-ground, three-month promotional campaign featuring Mark Waugh and Wasim Akram preceded the fun-filled extravaganza. Toon Cricket 2005 representatives visited over 100,000 kids through a 200-school-wide contact programme in select cities with exciting pre-event activities. We are excited to see the match turnout on Sunday."
