"To hit six on the long-on side
press (Z) when the ball is on your leg. Never glance
a ball which outside off-stump because it will result
in a edge to the slips."
"When playing off-spin, never
drive on the off-side unless you feel comfortable you
will hit it for six, most of the time cut it. When you
do, you must make sure it is well outside the off stump
so you can allow for the spin. If it is just about straight,
you have to glance it, just press Z after adjusting
your batsman's position to allow for the turn of the
"Although I used to think that
hitting a 6 with 'z' was impossible, it can be done.
You need to press 'z' quite early on the (<) side off
a fast bowler"
"To get a six, always use a
drive shot, never a glance. On the leg side, line the
heels of the player to the centre of the circle and
press (A) just before the ball bounces. On the off side,
you need to give your man room to open up the shot,
so leave some space between the player and the target
circle before hitting a drive. Always try to hit off
the leg side, its much easier to aim. Still, timing
is the most important thing, so just practice"
"I asked my dad for a can of
Carlsberg which I drank before the game, read the other
tips on this page and totally batted my way to sucess
in each and every scenario!"
"Once you have reached your
target number of runs for the over, play it safe and
only use the Z key on the leg side. This avoides loosing
a wicket unneccesarily and keeps you on track. However
on the off side give it your all!"

"When the ball is bowled to
the right (>) move the batsman, so the back of his heels
are roughly in the middle of the target circle, and
then play a cut/glance shot (Z key). Most of time this
results in a 4."
"Hitting a 6 is all about timing!
You need to line the batsman up for a drive and then
hit it perfectly. To do that, you need to press the
A key JUST BEFORE the ball bounces."
"If you want to hit a six don't
go right near the ball cause it will just hit the knee
pad. So you MUST be 2cm away form the ball marker before
driving the ball."
"When the ball is coming to
your left (<), as soon as the ball bounces, press the
A key on your keybourd. It won't work all the time,
but most of the time, you will get a four or six."
"To hit a 4 the best way to
do this is to wait for the bowler to ball to the right
of the batsmen now move near to the ball but don't go
over or on the ball marker stay just to the left to
it the drive the ball."
"Sometimes it's better to play
a leg-glance (Z key) and go for a 4 instead of going
for a six and getting caught out."
"If you don't have time to position
the batsman for a drive or a leg-glance it's often better
to play safe and just place the batsman directly behind
the ball and play a defensive shot. Better to play safe
than to get out unnecessarily!"
"To hit an almost certain 4,
wait until the ball marker is a decent distance outside
off stump and press z just before the ball bounces and
play a sort of square cut shot."
"If you want to hit a six over
the mid off fielder, (if the ball is pitching outside
off stump) move the batsman adjacent to the ball marker
and press 'a' button.
If you want to hit the ball for a four through mid wicket
move the batsman 2 centimetres right to the ball marker
and press the 'z' button."

"Everything is about defence
and attacking; 6's can be achieved if you want your
wickets to tumble down quickly, whereas defence and
2s and 3s are acceptable for beginners. If you achieve
2s and 3s mostly, you are on your way to hit 6x6 in
an over or 200 as an average."
