Naimur Rahman Durjoy (born September 19, 1974 in Manikganj) is a Bangladeshi cricketer. He played 8 Tests and 29 ODI matches for Bangladesh.

A right arm offspinner, Rahman was a member of Bangladesh's 1997 ICC Trophy winning side. He became his country's inaugural Test captain when he led Bangladesh on their Test debut, against India in 2000. Rahman took 6 for 132 in India's first innings, including the wickets of Sachin Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly.[1] However a loss of form saw him lose the captaincy the following year and also his spot in the side. He is the member of parliament from Manikganj-1.[2]

After retirement he became the president of the Cricketers' Welfare Association of Bangladesh.[3]
