Former Bangladesh left-arm spinner Mosharraf Hossain Rubel has passed away today. He was 40.

He breathed his last after battling cancer at a private hospital in the capital on Tuesday. 

Cricketer Musharraf Rubel's family sources have confirmed the development.

Mosharraf Hossain Rubel was diagnosed with a brain tumor in March 2019. However, Rubel recovered through treatment before his tumor resurfaced last year in January. He underwent successful surgery at the Mount Elizabeth Hospital in Singapore under the supervision of neurosurgeon Elvin Hong. But within a few years, he was diagnosed with tumor and cancer.

He was admitted to the hospital on March 14 after falling seriously ill. He was also in ICU. However, he was taken home last Friday when his condition improved.

Musharraf Rubel has played five ODIs in the national team jersey.

Rubel represented Bangladesh in five ODIs between 2008 to 2016. He made his ODI debut in 2008 against South Africa. He also took 392 wickets in 112 first-class matches. He took 120 wickets in 104 List 'A' matches.
