5. Sunshine snacks in Caribbean Premier League (CPL)
West Indies being an emanating island of fierce T20 cricketers, decided to initiate their own franchise-based T20 cricket in 2013. West Indies has emerged as one of the most dominating T20 sides in international cricket with currently 2 World T20 Titles under their belt. This has helped the league to flourish with some big names participating in the league from around the world.
As funny as the Caribbean players are with all their humorous side on the field, this time it was the management of CPL which took the fans with laughter. A snacks company named Sunshine Snacks was one of the main sponsors on board of the event. In a world where every player is being lavished away with tons of dimes, a snacks hamper as an award was rather an aberration.
The pictures of players receiving snacks hampers became quite popular on social media. Along with the snacks brand, the CPL has tied up with an El Dorado Rum, as well. Though, unlike chips, rum matches quite well with the Caribbean way of living.
