    This might be a bit of a spoiler....or could be just a total coincidence.......please read on at your personal discretion.










    I've noticed that on the past 3 times that i've been bowling and exited and saved the game and switched console off...the next time that I switch console on and load the current match, my bowler takes a wicket first delivery.....all caught.

    test matches.limited overs games need a different approach due to restrictions etc

    Since dbc 14 i love to bowl in cricket games but in ashes 17 i think its better to simulate or use modifier or reduce batsman stats

    currently playing 5th test ashes eng v aus.series is 2-2 and aussies need 405 to win it.they are 218 without loss and is very hard going in the field.first two tests i won convincingly and was taking wickets frequently but is more more challenging now.have found the edge a few times but they have been lucky so far or maybe its my field settings.yes im struggling but its a fascinating contest

    I can’t be bothered reading this whole thread, but I’ve been playing a career mode as a fast bowler and I regularly get 2, 3, 4 and sometimes more wickets a game in 4 day games.

    My general plan is have I think it’s the first preset field in the menu, but basically 3 slips with a gully, point and cover, mid on, mid off, square leg and and like a fine leg just in from the boundary. If the ball is swinging as a right armer bowling at off stump and taking it away trying to have the batsman hit into mid wicket and I’ll sometimes get an edge or a bowled. Trying to keep the length at the top of off stump or fuller with the odd back of a length. If the ball isn’t swinging much I move closer into the stumps and still bowl straight taking it away from the batsman with the same idea trying to get bowled or edges. I also use the broadcast camera as with the cameras that follow the bowler making you think you’re bowling a different line to what you are. I do the same thing to left handers around the wicket taking it away from close or starting really wide bringing it in to the stumps.
    Works for me anyway

    i was thinking the same thing,playing on veteran im finding it crucial to have a good field setup and bowling accordingly.currently playing tour match india v pakistan on a grassy,soft pitch.pakistan(cpu)chose to bat and were 130 odd for no loss but i persevered and currently have them around 245 for 5.Im also seeing the batsmen have problems with short balls(bouncers) bowling a good line,lots of playing and missing and edges plus the batsmen getting hit on the body.Cant remember who said it on here but credit to him/her,bowling a good length on soft pitches and full on hard pitches really is the way forward imo

    ive just tried finding a post where it was said that using a short,cross-seam delivery is more effective than a bouncer but cant find it anywhere.anyway that is a great little tip as batsmen quite often struggle to play.im sure it works bbetter on a hard surface but im playing on a soft pitch ind v pak and its still effective

    After so many frustrating days i finally found how to bowl in ODI :
    1.Be simple dont try so many variations just bowl standard deliveries as much if you getting help from pitch.
    2.Always aim stumps , dont bowl too outside or too much on leg side try to hit 1st stump to right hander.
    3.Field placement its important if you place your field according to line and length batsman will not thrash you.
    4.Always remember if AI didn't score on first 4 deliveries they will try to thrash last two deliveries and don't miss that chance.
    5.Spinners are crucial in this game if you know how to bowl spin you will control AI.
    6.Bouncer are very effective always bring chance to get wickets but again field placement for bouncer is necessary.
    7.Remember after 30 overs ball start to reverse so watch big eyes it will help you to adjust your line and length.
