Legendary Zimbabwe pace bowler Heath Streak has been appointed as Bangladesh’s bowling coach until 2016.

Streak will start his job in the first week of June, which is just prior to the national team’s three-match ODI series against India.

According to the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB), Streak will work for 450 days over the course of two years and will be available three weeks before every series the national team plays.

“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.”
