Expressing his excitement about the association, Raina said: "Howzat reminds me of the days when as a young boy in Muradnagar, I would earn rewards for winning local tournaments with my team, which made playing cricket more exciting and fun. It's a wonderful app that lets me engage with fans from all over India who share my love for cricket. Creating teams on Howzat and challenging cricket lovers from across the country to a test of skills on a daily basis has become an obsession with me lately. I really love the app -- it's my favourite in the fantasy space. I say this as a user first, and now also as a proud brand ambassador."
Bharat Bhatia, VP of Marketing at Junglee Games, commented on the big partnership: "We're super excited about Suresh Raina joining Howzat as one of our brand ambassadors. He has made a phenomenal contribution to Indian cricket over the years, and is loved across the country for that. His endorsement of Howzat is going to catalyze our brand's growth. Howzat is on a mission to deliver the most rewarding fantasy sports experience to sports lovers across the country.

Suresh Raina is considered one of the best game finishers to have graced the game of cricket. He has been a household name in the country since he was first selected for the Indian team in 2006.
