Mehrab Hossain (Bengali: ) (born 22 September 1978) is a Bangladeshi cricketer who played in 9 Tests and 18 ODIs from 1998 to 2003. By scoring 101 against Zimbabwe at Bangabandhu National Stadium at Dhaka in 1999, he became the first Bangladeshi cricketer to score century in ODIs.

Mehrab is associated with an extremely unfortunate incident. On 20 February 1998, Raman Lamba, formerly a Delhi swashbuckling opening batsman, fielding close to the bat, copped one on the skull off the bat of Mehrab Hossain. Lamba died of the injury later in the day. Mehrab was deeply affected by the incident and took a spell off the game. He came back later to play for Bangladesh.
