    Anybody figured out how to increase fielding stats yet? I fielded for 25 overs of a One Dayer and received nothing, also have a fielding perk which gives a small bonus (apparently)

    Any help or advice greatfully received.

    Thanks :)

    I have experienced this as well, have you actually taken any catches or run anyone out and still received no XP? I think the fielding tree is heavily geared towards the "Wicket-keeper" role, so unless you get a random catch or run out, you get nothing regardless of your fielding performance. Seems only wickets count as "good fielding". :(

    Not whilst fielding NO, I have not taken any catches or run any player out, but I simulated an innings and it said I took a catch on the scorecard, but never received any points for it, I'm currently playing a game, where I have taken wickets and I have also fielded every over so far, its a 4 day game, just at the beginning of day 2, so I will have to let you know the outcome. :)

    I had a similar experience in where I had only a single wicket for the game, accidentally simulated one ball instead siming to end the session and I apparently I got a wicket on that simulated ball. However, at the post-game experience reward I was only given a wicket bonus for 1 even though I had taken a second simulated one.

    It would appear all matches provide a fairly linear rate of experience towards your overall level even if you simulate, however you only receive specific "ability experience" for performing the 3 key actions listed in each area of batting, bowling and fielding yourself. Fielding as anyone besides keeper or maybe slip is a waste of time and deeply frustrating after you try to field all the innings for a test practice only to receive 0 exp towards fielding.

    It can be just as frustrating trying to get your batting skill up as a bowler, as doing anything worthwhile with the bat in your hands consumes mass stamina which bleeds over into your bowling (atleast in 50 over format).Edit

    So, I fielded for a Total of 127.2 Overs, Took 0 catches, 0 Run-Outs, and got a grand total of 0 Fielding AP. Guess it really is Wicket Keeper based, shame as on DB17 and Ashes games u could level up your fielding. Going to put myself as WK in my next One Day Match and see what comes of that.

    Keep u posted. :)

    *Edit* Cannot Set myself as WK, Going to start a new career as WK/Batsman.

    So, out of curiosity I began a Career as a WK, 1st club game was a 3 day game, batted my part, simulated fielding, Catches 7, RunOuts 1. Fielding AP = Catches 0, RunOuts 0, Stumpings 0, Bonus 300.

    Game 2 - One Day 50 Over Match, again Batted my Part, Fielded for 5 Overs, Took 1 Catch manually, simulated the other 45 Overs and took 3 catches during simulated overs. Fielding AP = Catches 50, RunOuts 0, Stumpings 0, Bonus 100.

    So manually taking a catch earnt me 50 in game 2, with 100 bonus, but 7 catches and a RunOut, (simulated) got me a 300 bonus. Anyhow it seems u need to be lucky enough to take a catch or 2 whilst manually fielding to earn anything what so ever. :)

    Lmao i think you can if you select the whole team.


    The the real rules there is not rule against being a wicket keeper and bowling a few overs as long as you have a second wicket keeper.


    Shame i can't do this.


    Unleas you are a wicket keeper you can spend hours in field doing nothing.


    Im pretty sure don bradman 14 has a skip to player in field.

    No one is going to manually field to get the points. Looks like our rating will be quite low then haha
