i know mushy keeps well sometimes but not all the time, that's where dhiman will. also mushy not having to worry about keeping means he can focus on batting which means he should have better output when batting which is better for the team. plus not much need for naeem's bowling if you have shakib, 2 specialist spinners, 2 specialist pacers plus nasir as back-up.

naeem does have strengths and i think his inclusion or omission comes down to what you want your team dynamic to be.
