Presence of cross stratified conglomerates in fan deltas?

Why are cross stratified conglomerates found in deposits of fan deltas? I know that fan deltas are alluvial fans that deposit directly into the sea, hence they are poorly sorted.But could not understand the reason for presence of cross stratified conglomerates.
