Milo and cricket – a great partnership

Are you mad for cricket? We are! MILO has been a major part of the Australian Cricket landscape since we began sponsoring cricket in 1992. Nestlé’s sponsorship includes Cricket Australia’s Junior Development Programs: MILO in2CRICKET, which introduces more than half a million children to the game every year, and MILO T20 Blast – the newest, all action, all fun game for children aged 8-12.
