Mohammad Rubel Hossain was born in 1990, on 1st January in Bagerhat, Bangladesh. He was born in a poor family where his father Siddikur Rahman was barely able to fulfill the basic needs of the family.
He was always fascinated with cricket, he had started playing at a very early age, although his family didn’t have the resources to hire a proper coach for him, he still didn’t gave up on his dream to play for the national team. A telecom Competition for pacer hunt marked the turning point in his career earning him recognition as a fast pace bowler. He got selected and somehow managed to move to Dhaka. He aimed at living a poverty free life where he could live happily without any worries with his family.
He almost lost his career recently in 2015 when his long time girlfriend Naznin Akter Happy, tried to frame him by filing rape charges against him. The news became a headline turning heads and shocking everyone. He was even arrested for three days, but got bail to fulfill his commitment to play at 2015’s World Cup. Later the rape charges were withdrawn when he was proved innocent. Rubel married his wife Ishrat Jahan Dola late last year. The couple is happily living together.
Coming from a poor family, he was unable to concentrate on his education. Since his childhood he aspired to play for the Bangladesh’s national team and spent most of his time playing. Maybe destiny was playing its part as he became the fasted bowler in the team without any refined coaching. He used to attend a local government school before he was discovered but never really concentrated in his studies.
