In this World Cup, Bangladesh has been completely drowned. He went to India with the hope of semi-final but had to return empty-handed. First of all, Shakib Al Hasan has been confirmed.
The supporters of Bangladesh’s World Cup are angry-disappointed-disappointed. Many officials of the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) are not disappointed? This is what Bangladesh National Cricket Team Team Director Khaled Mahmud Sujan would think.
Bangladesh will play the next match in the World Cup against Sri Lanka in Delhi. Before that match, Sujan is also on a tour of Delhi with the team. The former Bangladesh pacer was met by journalists there today. He was asked about various issues of the party.
When asked about his duties from the team director, Sujan said, ‘It is not that I am not doing my duties properly. I am trying to do the role given to me by BCB. Earlier in every tour I had an additional role, as part of the selection, a lot of decision-making responsibilities, this time too. There is nothing to tell the truth. As it happens, since those things are not in my role, I am not even thinking about them now. If there were roles, there would be thoughts.’
Angry about his role in the Bangladesh team, Sujan also said, ‘Of course I am thinking about the team. But it is not my role to decide. In one place I have been told how much I can, how much I can’t. I tried to involve myself in the earlier roles. As cricket is in my blood, coaching is my profession. Although I am not involved in any coaching in Bangladesh, I have spoken to the players individually in my previous visits as a technical person. But now I am away from them. Since these are not my roles, I have not been given that by the board.’
After that, the journalists asked Sujan to ask, ‘If he had been such a grandpa in the team, would he have come (to India)?’ The team director’s reply, ‘I wouldn’t come. When I came to the World Cup, I said that we will play the semi-finals. In fact, I did not know what to think.’
