Streak is currently bowling coach of the national team, who performed above expectations to reach the final of a triangular tournament with Sri Lanka and India at home this month.
And the 36-year-old, who took 216 test wickets in 65 Tests for his country, insists they have a crop of players capable of competing at the highest level once again.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“The guys have improved a lot in terms of their play and confidence after beating some of the big teams,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Streak.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Those recent victories have given them some belief that they can compete at the highest levels.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“However, with regards to Test cricket return, there is still a lot that needs to be done and to be realistic we can make a return sometime next year.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Streak forms part of a coaching team alongside former England batsman Alan Butcher.
