Mine would have been Nasir. I think Mushy is already low in confidence with those dropped catches and his choice of Rubel for the last over instead of Razzak.
I know I am dead against promoting Nasir in the ODI or test since he seems to thrive under pressure (and not so good with shinny ball moving) but so does Riyadh. So why choose Nasir over Riyadh since the latter did tremendously in the ODI series? Because, what Nasir has is the fearless attitude that Riyadh does not. Since it's a T20, taking such risk with Nasir would make sense. But it's easy for us to say now since Riyadh could not deliver the win despite his good form. I do not think Mushy did anything wrong by picking his inform player to finish the job, it's Riyadh's fault to fail to deliver...and Tamim as well.
