HEATH Streak will be unveiled as the new national team head coach in Bulawayo today unless Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC) springs a shocker.

ZC has invited media houses to the unveiling of the new coach at a press conference slated for Queens Sports Club in the city.

"We are pleased to invite you to a media briefing scheduled for Tuesday morning where Zimbabwe Cricket chairman Tavengwa Mukuhlani will officially unveil the new Zimbabwe national head coach," reads ZC's invitation.

Streak, a former national skipper and bowling coach, is the overwhelming favourite for the job and by far the most experienced and qualified candidate among the four aspirants interviewed for the job last week.

Streak promised to use the experience he gained as Bangladesh bowling coach to extract the best out of Zimbabwe's players by getting them involved in decision making so that they all feel part of the team.

He boasts of a 15-year playing career and more than seven years as a coach.

He is undoubtedly the finest pace bowler ever produced by Zimbabwe and holds the record of the most Test wickets (216) from 65 Tests. He also played 189 ODIs.
