Heath Streak

Former Zimbabwe captain Heath Streak has joined Bangladesh's new-look coaching set-up as a specialist bowling coach on a two-year contract.

The 40-year-old had previously been Zimbabwe's bowling coach until leaving the role in 2013.

Streak will work alongside ex-Sri Lanka batsman Chandika Hathurusingha, who was appointed as head coach earlier in May.

"I hope I can bring my experience to the bowlers," said Streak, who played in 65 Tests and 189 one-dayers.

"I look forward to the challenge of working with the Tigers and thank the Bangladesh Cricket Board for the opportunity.

"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 look forward to teaming up with the new coaching staff and mapping the future for this exciting team."
