Heath Streak appointed Zimbabwe bowling coach

"We have been talking to Heath for some time and now that the modalities of his relationship with ZC have been concluded, we have every confidence that his presence in the changing rooms can only be good for the development of our national team," said ZC Managing Director, Ozias Bvute .

"It is with great honour that I return to ZC in the role of the national bowling coach and I am looking forward to being part of the vision to re-build Zimbabwe as a powerful cricket playing nation," said Streak. "I have amassed a wealth of knowledge during my international career and look forward to imparting this knowledge onto Zimbabwe’s up and coming talent," he added.

Commenting on the murky past between the organization and Streak, Bvute had this to say: "A lot has been said and done in the past but the fact is that Heath has made an undisputable contribution to the game of cricket in Zimbabwe and is perhaps the finest bowler this country has had to date. We have collectively agreed to draw a line in the sand and allow for cricket to be the winner ".

In addition to his duty of setting up the technical structures for the bowling side, Streak will also be seconded to the franchise squads where they will benefit from his specialist coaching skills.

Heath has had a successful international playing career and holds the record as the first Zimbabwean to reach 100 Test wickets. He will be working alongside national team coach, Walter Chawaguta as the technical team prepares for upcoming international series.
