And I believe NN are using Mushy incorrectly. The one game where he was sent in early he won them the match. He bats best when he is allowed to accrue the 1s and 2s early on in his innings but in the last couple of games he had to play his shots right away and he panicked. People complaining about his consistency - I'd like to know who are the consistent T20 batsmen in Bangladesh (other than Tamim just very recently)? Mushy's T20 average is the second-best for any BD player after Tamim and he has a higher SR than Tamim. It's ridiculous to even think about dropping him.
I agree with you completely. 1 bad game and everybody's calling him to be out of the xi....it's NN management's fault of not using him properly in the xi...imagine had he been on the crease batting at #3. NN could have won against Wayamba. And about last match...what can he do if he comes to bat at #5 when the team's state is pretty distressing?? It puts a lot of pressure for him to start slogging straight away. Even Iceman had similar problems in IPL4 and 5 when he had to slog from the very first ball and he eventually had to start walking towards the dressing room getting dismissed. Come on everyone!
