The team formation process for this season of the National Cricket League (NCL) has started. It was at this time that Rubel announced his decision to retire. Rubel himself confirmed the retirement to BDCricTime.
In 2009, Rubel made his debut for the Bangladesh team. He first debuted in ODI, then T20, and finally in July 2009, he made his Test debut. He was once a regular member of the team.
Rubel witnessed a 95-run victory in the debut Test against the West Indies. Very few cricketers of Bangladesh have had the privilege of seeing victory in their debut Test. He took three wickets with the ball in the first innings of that match.
Rubel played his last Test for the national team in Rawalpindi against Pakistan in February 2020. He took 36 wickets in 27 matches at an average of 76.77 before retiring. He took 5 wickets once in an innings.
Despite his retirement from red-ball cricket, Rubel wants to continue white-ball cricket for a few more years. After last year's tour to New Zealand, Rubel did not get a chance in the Bangladesh team, but he continues to play as a top bowler in Dhaka Premier League (DPL), Bangladesh Premier League (BPL).
