Puma Cricket sign Luke Wright
Its been a busy week for England and Sussex All-Rounder Luke Wright. The 26-year-old, the medium-fast bowler, signed a new deal to keep him at his current county until the end of the 2015 season and has also agreed a deal with Puma Cricket to use and endorse their equipment.
Wright, formerly a Kookabura poster boy, will now be using Puma’s newly released Cobalt gear for the 2012 county season. With its striking Yellow and Blue livery, the Cobalt is sure to be catching peoples attention this season. He averages 38.89 in his 70 first-class matches and will no doubt be looking to break back into the England set up this season.
Wright who has played 46 one-day internationals for England and 30 Twenty20 matches, will not have come cheap for Puma but with his good looks and destructive batting he fits well with Puma’s marketing ethos.
According to Puma, the Cobalt range takes its name from a chemical element that adds greater wear resistance and high strength to metal alloys. Featuring a big profile with a large hitting zone designed for dynamic front foot stroke-making, the Cobalt sounds ideal for a batman as destructive as Wright.
