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) says.

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 would 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.

''It is exciting for me to be back into the international coaching arena again. It is my passion to coach at an elite level and I hope I can bring my experience as a former player and coach to the Bangladeshi bowlers.''

Earlier this month, former Sri Lanka batsman Chandika Hathurusingha was named as head coach of the Bangladesh national side.
