Hints

Batting

  • Do not attempt to hit the ball for six when its right into your foot (Yorker). Instead, play aggressive shot for sweep. It works quite often.
  • Try to build your confidence meter before attempting any big shots.
  • When the CPU assigns defensive field, try to defend the deliveries in the offside more often to clinch a single run. Remember try to clinch the single quickly or you will be run out.
  • You will find medium fast bowlers more difficult to handle than the faster ones. Do not hit slog shots. You will succeed one or two times then will definitely get out.
  • For Slogging, hit the ball just before it lands on the ground and you will find that it will reach the fence.

 PC  You can choose either type of batting, automatic or manual If you choose automatic it will easier to handle dual. Use [Shift] for backward shot and [Ctrl] for forward shot. The wicket taking ball is Length Ball or Yorker. Do not be afraid of those types of balls. If Yorker is set for you, press [Ctrl] + [Left] or [Right] and hit it straight. If you go to defend the Yorkers they will bowl the same type of ball. The second type of wicket taking ball is Hook Shot. Move aside for the bouncer ball and use your rear foot and loft it. It will be a six. The main strategy behind playing the shots is to play fearlessly and aggressively.

Bowling

  • A spin bowler is the best weapon in the game. When bowling to a right hander, a leg spin bowler bowling leg spin just short of a Yorker placed just outside leg stump, will eight times out of ten bowl the CPU. Also, placing the ball in the same location with an off spinner, bowling a wrong one will get the same results.
  • Pitch the bowl slightly outside the off stump, just towards the crease line. Then, start with in swinger and when it is ready to pitch, change it to out swinger. It will get you a lot of wickets in the slip regions and backward point region.

  • Other delivery to baffle the batsman by starting with Off Cutter and Bowl Leg Cutter at the last minute.
  • Set the field where you have fielder in closing catching position and bowl according to the field set. Remember the outside the off stump and out swinger is your delivery
  • Use the following trick to get easy wickets. Place all the fielders on the boundary from third man position to mid off in custom fielding editor. Only place a second slip and a fielder in the off drive position inside the circle. Then, bowl an in swing bouncer delivery far outside the off stump close to the line of wide. The batsman will play a slogging shot. You can catch those shots in the boundary line. Do not worry about the wide run. Most of the time the batsman will hit those shots in the air; try to catch it.
  • If you want to take wickets, select a fast bowler. Bowl the ball at the toes of the batsman with a specific speed for two or three balls. Then, change the speed to extremely low or high. The batsman will mistime the shot, and the ball will hit the stumps.
  • An easy method of taking wickets is to set the fielder at long on, long off, straight, near to bowler on both sides, at square leg. Keep only three fielders inside the circle and keep the fielders at the boundary line as a semi-circle. Do not keep fielders behind the batsman and keep the indicator at the leg. Move it upwards until it shows green. Lock it at the green region and it will be surely wicket. If you matched the indicator color and locking color it will definitely be a wicket.
  • While playing in a test series, select a team which has more bowling power (for example, England). When bowling take a skilled spinner (for example, G. Swan). Continuously for three balls, throw a top ball or off spin. Then while throwing the fourth ball as a off spin, turn it into a special ball. Most of the time you will get a wicket.

Catching

 PC  When catching the ball, watch the ring whenever it becomes orange. Wait for two seconds then press [Enter] when the green ring appears.
