Default Health Streak set to be Gujarat Lions bowling coach

Heath Streak is likely to be appointed bowling coach of Gujarat Lions, the new IPL franchise based in Rajkot.

Not good news for Bangladesh, he has been instrumental on developing our pacers. Had an immense influence on the current crop of pacers, hopefully they have picked certain qualities and learned from him. Now the BIG QUESTION? who next.. and what do you want that coach to have? Feel free to comment, analyse, recommend or just leave your opinion in regards to the next Bowling coach for BD.

You're making it sound as if he is leaving

Umm thats because his contract does run out in June. Even though he is likely to return to BD after IPL, unless BCB renews the contract, Streak will be roped in by another team for sure. I hope BCB keeps Streak at any cost as he is a solid acquisition and may even be our future head coach if Haturida decides to leave

I don't see any reason for BCB not to renew his contract. Bangladesh pace-bowling line up is definitely the best in the subcontinent right now, at least in ODIs. He's most likely preparing some bargaining ground for himself and I won't blame him for that.

Yeah this is just temporary but BCB definitely needs to renew his contract and if they are smart then they will. Invest in this guy, there aren't many like him out there.

What is the probability that he will sign the extension if he is getting short coaching stint that pays good money?

Firstly, Heath Streak is definitely the best bowling coach we ve ever had with clear visible impact to our crop of pacers. If BCB is smart, they would give him a long contract till next WC (Along with rest of coaching staff-Hathurusingha, Kalpage, Mario Villayavaran, Richard Halsall). All these guys seem to work very well together. Under the Streak, the present crop of pacers will blossom in the coming years. Sadly we didnt get any such impact from Pont, Ramanayake, and Jurgensen.

With Sri Lanka signing Graham Ford, we should try to renew Hathurusingha for a long term as well. Even if Hathurusingha doesnt continue in the long run, i d pick Streak as the next best candidate for the head coach role.

I think BCB has to accept that Streak can coach elsewhere, because their agreement is for a given number of days, rather than a full time contract. Better for them not to be restrictive when they renew contract, as this might discourage him. As long as IPL is around every individual will want to get involved to earn a quick buck.

Finally if we do end up losing Streak, it will be a loss. But i am sure we can find competent replacements. It ll be interesting to see how the Irish do under Chaminda Vaas who will be their bowling coach in the upcoming T20WC. He had a mixed time with Sri Lanka, but was highly praised by New Zealand. Who knows, maybe he can deliver under the command of Hathurusingha.

I hope they renew. Our pace attack in ODIs AND Tests has never looked sharper. He has raised the expectation of our pacers and told them, conditions notwithstanding, they must be spearheads. That's why even back up seamers like Shafiul delivered in Tests.

Health Steak can do nothing with Indian pacers wether they are gujrati or marathi , there were other greats who failed before him.
He better stick to BD pacers who are born to be good fast bowlers.
