Kookaburra signs Young Star
Australian bat company Kookaburra has signed on young wicket keeper
Dylan Jellett to advertise and use their products for the next 3 years.
The deal, an un-named figure, is said to be a record for a player of Jellett's age.
The young keeper said today that he was "stoked" with the deal and was proud to launch a new advertising campaign with the company.
Parrallels have been drawn to Slazenger's large deal with upcoming player Michael Clarke. That company bought Clarke into sponsorship just months before he burst onto the international scene, making the company thousands.
Jellett laughed at the suggestion that this was his step into the CW International side, but said he would be "very grateful for any oppurtunities" given to him by the CWBCC.
