I can accept criticism: Sujan
For past few years, Sujan had been at the receiving end of criticisms for his controversial roles in the board and with the national and other domestic teams.
However, Sujan is now also the man who is being credited for Bangladesh Under-19 team’s historic World Cup win in South Africa. While Sujan’s name was mentioned several times during the final match against India, the BCB boss Nazmul Hasan Papon also claimed thereafter that Sujan was deserving man to receive the most credit.
But this does not mean the criticisms about Sujan have ended. Rather some people are still of the opinion that Sujan is trying to take away someone else’s credit. Some also made issues with Sujan being seen on the screen crying following Bangladesh’s win in Potchefstroom.
But according to the man in question himself, he is not concerned about what other people are talking about him.
“I have been a sportsman since my childhood. I can’t go a single day without cricket. I can take criticisms. People curse, also they do clap — it is very natural,” said Sujan.
Then he also added, “But it feels bad that sometimes people make wrong interpretations. Still that’s okay, because general public are not seeing every time what I am doing or not doing.”
Sujan said he is grateful to those who evaluate his works constructively, and give him encouragement to go forward.
“Those who really see my work honour me, love me, and inspire me to do more good works. It is very important for me.”
Sujan, who captained the national side from 2003 to 2004, also addressed the much talked about crying issue.
“I cry after Bangladesh’s every single win. Maybe this one (Under-19 final) was seen from outside. I had also cried in Multan. Bangladesh’s every win is very important for me, because these wins don’t come easily.”
