Mosharraf Rubel diagnosed with brain tumour again
Bangladesh all-rounder Mosharraf Hossain Rubel has once again been diagnosed with a form of brain cancer. The cricketer himself confirmed the news on Sunday (January 24).
The cricketer took to Facebook to reveal the recurrence of the tumour, and also informed that this is his 9th cycle of chemotherapy.
“Very sorry inform you that my tumour is recurrence.This is my number 9 cycle of chemotherapy. I can’t tolerate anymore. Allah please help me. Begging your prayers,” wrote Rubel from his Facebook account.
It was revealed earlier in March 2019 that Rubel was diagnosed with glioma, a type of tumour that starts in the glial cells of the brain or the spine.
Due to the illness, the 39-year-old spinner had fainted several times before starting the treatment. The illness had also prevented him from playing cricketer.
However, Rubel had successful surgery to his brain tumour on March 17, 2019 at Mount Elizabeth Hospital in Singapore. After that, he again came back to cricket while chemotherapy was still going on.
Rubel is not a very experienced campaigner in the Bangladesh national team, as the Dhaka-born cricketer represented the Tigers in only 5 ODI matches after making his debut way back in 2008.
But he has found noteworthy success in the country’s domestic circuit. He has 392 first-class wickets to his name after playing 112 matches, while also has 120 wickets from 104 List A games. Besides he has two centuries and 16 half-centuries in First-class cricket and eight half-centuries in List-A cricket.
