Default captain's bowling strategy

Anyone else a little upset about mushy not utilizing part timers? He brought in shahadat in the last over of the powerplay, needlessly where he could have easily went with gazi or razzak. And that over cost us quite a few runs. He again could have easily bowled mominul or ash when mahmudullah was bowling but he opted on saving overs for shahadat, for what? We all know pacers now are a liability more than an asset and his expensive opening spell adding more reasons to not use him at death one would think. He should have realized that and got a part timer to bowl during the middle overs. Again i think even as little as two overs less from shahadat would have saved 20 odd runs. But NO mush had to go the conventional " front line bowler has to bowl out his quota" strategy. I heard russel arnold bringing up the point and I was thinking the same before he said it.
