Nurul Abedin is a former Bangladeshicricketer born September 7, 1964 in Chittagong who played in 4 ODIs from 1986 to 1990. Nurul Abedin, more commonly known as Nobel, was the elder brother of Minhajul Abedin (Nannu). Originally from Chittagong, the brothers were prominent figures in Dhaka cricket, in the 80's and 90's. In the international arena, Nobel was in and out of the national side. Though no less gifted than his brother, he had to suffer for the whims of the selectors. Still, he opened the innings in Bangladesh's very first ODI against Pakistan in 86. A week before the tournament, he had scored a memorable 102 against Pakistan Zone A. There, he had put on 135 for the second wicket with the skipper Gazi Ashraf Hossain. Against a stronger zone C side, he had scored 50, sharing a century opening stand with the veteran Raqibul Hasan.
