Gujarat Lions set to appoint Zimbabwe's Streak as bowling coach for IPL 9

February 09, 2016 20:51 IST

Heath StreakFormer Zimbabwe all-rounder Heath Streak is set to be appointed the bowling coach of Gujarat Lions, one of the two new teams to feature in the Indian Premier League this season.

Streak is currently the bowling coach of Bangladesh but he doesn't have an exclusive contract with the national team and that enables him to take up the IPL job, according to ESPNCricinfo.

Bangladesh have done well since Streak was appointed in May 2014, winning their home ODI series against India, Pakistan and South Africa.

Australian Brad Hodge has been named as Gujarat Lions coach, while Suresh Raina was named as the captain.
