Tag Rubel Hossain

Rubel was named in the ODI squad for the tri-series with Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe and made his debut in the third game of the round-robin stage, a game Bangladesh needed to win to progress to the final. Rubel cleaned up the middle-order and tail-enders with a 4-wicket haul in 5.3 overs. He also played in the tri-series final, where he had a poor end to the game, but retained his place for the three ODI series against Zimbabwe soon after. More good performances led to his name being named in the Test squad to face the West Indies for the first time. He made his debut at Arnos Vale, and took three wickets in West Indies’ 1st innings, and also formed a good 10th wicket partnership with Shahadat Hossain in Bangladesh’s 1st innings.

Rubel has also featured in two Twenty20 matches, both coming in the 2009 ICC World Twenty20. He bowled 149.5 km/h in a warm-up game of the 2009 ICC World Twenty20.

Rubel’s best ODI figure of 6/26 vs New Zealand at Mirpur, where he also took a hat-trick was nominated to be one of the best ODI bowling performances of the year 2013 by ESPNcricinfo.
