Martin Armon Suji, born June 2, 1971 in Nairobi, is a Kenyan cricketer who has played first-class cricket and One-Day Internationals for the Kenyan national side.[1] He is a right-handed batsman and a right-arm medium-fast bowler.

Suji has been part of the Kenyan team for more than a decade, having first appeared for them in 1990, and having played in the 1996, 1999 and 2003 Cricket World Cups. His Economy rate of 4.45 in 64 One-Day Internationals is highly appreciable while representing an Associated Country and played against best teams in the world. He is a natural swing bowler whose ability to keep a perfect line and length in the initial overs is laudable. His brother is fellow player Tony. He participated in Kenya's Super Six win against Zimbabwe in 2003 and was named man of the match.

He is also considered to be among the greatest bowlers ever to have bowled to Sachin Tendulkar in his prime. Superstar Rajnikant is alleged to claimed so.

Following the departure of Roger Harper after the T20 World championships in 2007, Suji was made assistant national team coach assisting Alfred 'Boi' Njuguna who was filling in as caretaker coach before Cricket Kenya appointed Andy Kirsten as full time coach in May 2008

Suji also took part in the 1990, 1994 and 1997 ICC Trophy competitions.

Suji is the current coach of the Ugandan national side.[2]
