Dhaka - Bangladesh have appointed former Zimbabwe Test captain Heath Streak as a specialist bowling coach after agreeing on a two-year contract, the local cricket board (BCB) said on Monday.

The 40-year-old Streak, who played in 65 Test matches and 189 one-dayers, had been Zimbabwe's bowling coach from 2009-13 and will join Bangladesh prior to next month's three-match ODI series against India.

"I look forward to the challenge of working with the Tigers and thank BCB for the opportunity," the former all-rounder said in a statement.
