Because at higher elo/tournaments, people know how to handle these champions suitly, low to mid elo, not so much.

Malphite gets raped by AP in lane, Shen isn't that strong of a laner anymore. Shen is a slow jungler as compared to other champions and is prone to counter jungling and Malphite's jungle clear is weak as well.

shen and malphite are easy counterpicks, and nunu is very versatile and can lane almost anywhere and jungle, so he really cant be counterpicked?

b/c curse knew what they wanted to do b4 the bans even hit--they wanted a lategame nasus-nunu-kog that owns **** b/c they knew that that's where CLG was going to take the game to--they've got a habit of holding out for lategame

Because certain strategies call for certain champions.

As a quick overview Shen brings lots of tanky and great split push ability. Malphite initiates like no other except maybe Amumu. Nunu buffs the adc and peals like a total boss.

They didn't want split push or initiate most likely and wanted the peel/buffs.

If they had picked Malphite into that Rumble, it would've been disastrous.

Because with organized teams, they aren't much of a problem. They know how to deal with split pushing shen, and Malph loses a lot of top matchups. And AFAIK, neither Wickd or Voyboy play much of either champ. Nunu is also ridiculously strong with Vayne or Kog.

Nunu can go top, jungle, or support. All three roles require different counters. This forces CLG.eu to make the first decided picks, but GLG.eu realized this and countered with chogath, who can jungle, mid, or top, and corki, a carry who, depending on his support, can play passively with Q poke, or aggressively with burst damage from E.
