The fact that under his captaincy DR were able to keep KRB to a low total is also testament to his abilities - especially given how poor DR have been in the field previously.
Plus, friendly competition between our players can only be good for our national team. Shakib would not like to go through the BPL without picking up a single MOM!
Of course Mushy deserves it more as he helped his team win.. but I don't think Mushy came in the same situation where Shakib came in.. Shakib came in a very critical situation. If I remember it correctly he came in almost around 8th or 9th over and all the big names of his team was already back in the pavillion and they only managed something around 50 ... that is a hell of a pressure situation than Mushy coming in at 3/60 and that too in 7th over... Zunayed already gave DR a great start so run rate was under control so what mushy had to do is play out the overs and score runs and he had a good partner in Shahzaib Hasan who had a SR of 113.. whereas Shakib's partner Nasir had a SR of 80 or so... Shakib didn't get a good partner who can hit .. Mushy deserves it but I won't take away the credit that Shakib deserves.. he got 2 cruical wicket too.. none other bowlers supported him...
Anyways at the end it's the win that matters and Mushy wins
