He deservedly won MOT. Shak fans should get over. He took his team to final. Shak could not.
As long as you're singing his praise without any mention of Shak it's fine. As soon as you bring Shak into the discussion you're only inviting trouble.

Let's compare a few things. Shak's worst score in 8 innings was 41. Kane surpassed 41 only 4 times in 9 innings. These are Kane's lowest scores: 27, 30, 40, 40, 41. Shak got 11 crucial wickets to Kane's 2. Shak won 3 MOMs to Kane's 2 and if we had won any other matches he would've won more.

Kane had a team. They can bat, bowl and field. Against SL he was neither required to bat nor bowl and his team still got the W. On the other hand, as the Iceland cricket team said, Shak was a one man army. He couldn't rely on his team mates to get out of the way of an on target throw that was hitting the stumps.

I'll leave you with two last points to consider:
1. If you replace Shak with Kane in the BD squad how many games do you think BD wins? One at most? I don't think they even win against Afg without Shak's 51 and 5/29.
2. With the world cup on the line and a super over to decide the fate, do you think Shak would shy away from batting? Heck he'd probably bowl the super over too.

They considered MOT from Semi-final and Final.

I think, ICC should have had a special recognition for Shakib for getting more than 600 runs and 11 wickets, as that never had happened before. I could be wrong, but I also think he got max number of MOS tournament.
