Cricket 2005 - Platform: XBox Getting the opposition out faster: ---------------------------------- Try to bring the medium fast or medium bowler on. Then, place the bowling marker just short of the good length spot or even further down towards the bowler. Try inswing the ball or outswing but drop the speed to almost nothing. Keep the speed to two or three lines (yellow meter). The batsman will play a backfoot defensive shot and eventually get bowled or LBW. Another way of getting the batsman out quickly is bring the medium fast or fast bowler and try bowling inswing bouncer and place a fileder at deep thirdman for a catch. This trick only works when the batsman is new to the crease or tailenders. Bring in a fast bowler (for example, McGrath) and aim a normal delivery behind either the middle or the off stump. Put the bar up to almost full power and let it rip. Most batters will swing and miss or be caught LBW. Keeping the scoreboard moving or hitting some runs Always bring the left handed batsman first and aim for the leg side boundary for a six hit shot; he will succeed a lot of the time. In test matches, do not rush for runs or you will get out very quickly. Place your innings and play the ball in the gaps.
