Ashes 05 movies:
Complete all objectives in the 05 Ashes scenarios under
any difficulty. There is a set for England and a set for Australia.
Hint: General strategies:
You can make batsman out by bowling with a slow medium
bowler and bowling shot of the length bowl (slower delivery)
With fast bowler you can bowl the good length bowl. The keeper
will have no problems catching it. Keep the speed to almost full,
but not full. Also, any swing will do.
Play Straight and hit the Six hit shot only when the bowl is near
your half crease length or else see your stump flying towards
Play in New Zealand's stadiums (specially Auckland). The grounds
are small and it is easier to hit sixes there than anywhere else.
To get batsman out, just bowl a short pitched delivery with a
medium pacer (Ganguly, Ponting) and keep the speed at not more
than two or three lines. Keep the bowl in line with wickets. The
batsman will eventually get bold or LBW.
If you are batting, be positive. If it takes you 15 overs to score
a run, you will fail. This is applicable even when it was just
for Michael Clarke to score a 50. It would be nearly a must in
the final Australian scenario when you have about 17 overs to
score about 24 runs per over. Try to get at least a run or two
per ball, and at least a four or six every over. Lower-order batsman
almost have to adopt a "whack and go" strategy because
an on-drive could be weak and become a pop-fly to a fielder.
If you are bowling, vary the length and go around the wicket and
off-cut the ball often; Glenn McGrath and Simon Jones cannot swing
the ball. For a spinner, vary the pace.
Hint: Hidden trophies:
There are trophies that you can only win from completing
tournaments within the respective tours rather than a separate
Sharja One-day tournament: Complete One-day circuit tour. The
particular trophy will be won in the third tournament.
The Ashes Urn: Full English or Australian-hosted Ashes tour; the
full series (not scenarios).
Hint: Special balls:
Fast Medium bowlers (for example, Flintoff and McGrath)
cannot reverse swing, even when they actually can. Fast bowlers
do not have a slower ball special delivery.
Hint: Getting all English domestic trophies:
English Domestic Trophies: Complete two seasons of English Domestic
seasons as a Division 2 side using 2006 division sets (Essex,
Surrey or Somerset recommended). By doing this, you can win the
first season and be promoted to Division 1, and win season 2 to
attain the remaining Division 1 titles.
Tour Bats: Complete each tour with at least 50% tour success,
which is determined by matches won and sub-series finals won.
Glitch: Bald batsmen or fielder:
If you create a player, even when you are updating
stats for a batsman already in the roster, he will be bald when
he wears a hat, cap, or helmet.
Glitch: Batting milestones at the end of
If you score a 50 or 100 at the end of the over, the
batting stats will be for the next player on strike. For example,
Brendan McCullum scores a 50 at the 8.5th over against Australia,
and he is partnering Ross Taylor. McCullum will still celebrate,
but the batting stats you can see is Ross Taylor's because Ross
will be the next man on strike at the start of the 9th over. To
overcome this, try to get to 49 runs, 99 runs... and get the milestone
by scoring a single at the x.5th over to stay on strike for the
Glitch: Getting a wicket at the end of
The commentator will announcement how many wickets
the next player expected to bowl, unless if he has not taken any.
For example, have Australia vs. England in a Test. The opening
bowlers are Brett Lee and Gleen McGrath. Brett Lee just got his
third wicket, but Glenn McGrath has fourth as well, then Richie
Benaud will say how many wickets McGrath has taken. As the game
progresses, and your bowling tandem changes, and you will be hearing
who is expected to bowl next (based on the asterisk next to a
player's name on "Change Bowler" screen). Changing your
next bowler between overs does not help. It could be very wrong
if you are in a one-dayer if you have claimed a wicket at the
final ball of the innings because there is nobody else bowling
Glitch: Manual run-outs denied:
Use manual fielding controls and bowl with a fast-medium
or fast bowler. Throw and smash the unguarded non-striker's wicket
(R1 + X) while the non-striker nonchalantly strays
away from the popping crease without a run being called, the umpire
will lift the finger, and the player will walk away. The total
number of wicket will not increase, and he will be back with another
