Three days before his demise, former spinner Mosharraf Hossain Rubel was at home with the family. He had been suffering from brain cancer for three years and was having treatment both at home and abroad at the time of his death. The cricketer, who had appeared in five matches for the national side, became unwell again on Tuesday afternoon and was confirmed dead at the hospital where he had been taken. From there, he was transported to his apartment in Baridhara, where his family members rushed to his aid.
Rusdani, Rubel’s three-year-old son, was awakened by his mother’s scream. Rubel’s family members described themselves as “emotionally shattered” and expressed optimism that he would recover, but that did not happen. In reality, he had been battling the disease for a long time before this. Rubel’s family predicted that even if he recovered, he would get ill again soon.
The deceased’s second namaz-e-janaza was held at Mirpur Cricket Stadium after he was taken to the hospital.
Rubel’s spouse, as well as the Bangladesh Cricket Board, pleaded for Rubel to be pardoned. Atiqul Islam, the mayor of Dhaka North City Corporation, has affirmed that Rubel’s burial would remain in Banani’s cemetery.
