Nothing to be confused mate
..... After shafiul came to bat Shabbir did not get the chance to get strike back and hence did not get the chance to protect shafiul at all.

So the tactics should always be trust ur tail for 5th and 6th ball of an over.... But never from the first ball of a new over that is when a new bowler can run in knowing this is the chance to put in a full over to tailenders.
