USA poised to sign lucrative deal

ESPNcricinfo staff

Sources close to the USA Cricket Association have told ESPNcricinfo the board is close to announcing a multi-million dollar sponsorship deal.

While details are sketchy, it is believed it was largely driven by Don Lockerbie during his time as chief executive which ended when he was dismissed last month.

"This commercial deal will bring millions of dollars to US cricket and lots of fresh ideas and vision to promote cricket to this country," the source said.
