Dhaka: May 26, 2014

Bangladesh appointed former Zimbabwe skipper Heath Streak as the national bowling coach for two years ahead of the three one-dayers against India starting June 15. Streak, 40, is expected to arrive in Dhaka in the first week of June to work alongside the newly appointed team of head coach Chandika Hathurusingha and assistant coach Sarwar Imran.

“Streak has agreed a two-year term with the BCB during which he will commit 450 days based on the schedule of the Bangladesh team,” Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) director and media committee chairman Jalal Yunus informed. According to his contract, Streak will be available three weeks before every series and will prolong his stay with the team before the ICC World Cup 2015. Apart from the role of national team coach, he will also be a consultant for the other teams under the BCB.

“I look forward to the challenge of working with the Tigers and thank BCB for the opportunity,” Streak said in a statement released by the BCB. “It is exciting for me to be back into the international coaching arena again. It is my passion to coach at an elite level. “I hope I can bring my experience as a former player and coach to the Bangladeshi bowlers. I look forward to teaming up with the new coaching staff and mapping the future for this exciting team.”

Streak, who has represented Zimbabwe in 65 Tests and 189 One-Day Internationals (ODIs), was the national bowling coach between 2009 and 2013.
