=============================================================
7. Hints & Tips
=============================================================
BOWLING:

1. Utilise the full range of your bowlers.

2. Vary the pace of the bowling.

3. Vary the spin of the bowling.

4. Medium-Fast and Fast bowlers are good on green pitches.

5. Spin bowlers are best on dusty and hard pitches.

6. Vary the bowling side between over and around the wicket.

7. When bowling, frequently vary your field setup to defend against your opposition's shots.

8. When bowling with Medium-Fast and Fast bowlers in a test match, it is good to have three or four slip fielders to catch edges.

9. Patience is a virtue in a test match.

10. Medium-pacers are more effective on damp and wet pitches.

BATTING:

1. Keep an eye on the opponent's fielding positions to exploit the gaps.

2. Use practice nets to learn the shots and perfect your timing.

3. In the practice nets, learn every shot so that you can vary your shot selection and direction in the game.

4. Remember, patience is a virtue in a test match.

5. Use the Six Hit button early on in One Day Games as the fielders have restrictions placed on them during the first 30% of the game.

6. Missing the shot results in a drop in the batsman's confidence level.

7. Being hit by the ball results in a significant drop in the batsman's confidence level.

8. When first batting, use the run assist function to help judge running between the wickets.

Yeah, keep talking. We're much better ranked in One-Day series then India, second since Banglore, we have been getting at test cricket. Then Pakistan Masters XI vs India Masters XI at Abu Dubi, once again we beat you. And when we came back to beat you filthy Indians, "4-2," and your audience started throwing bottles on the field. And oh yeah, Pakistan has the record for two best bowlers to take most wickets,"Wasim Akram, Waqaq Younis." So you need to shut your filthy mouth. God. Plus, we will beat you in the India Vs Pakistan 2006 series. You Indians have no sportsmanship, you're so f**king stingy. Then you also like, about how you've won all the wars. Oh yeah, you only beat us on the last war 'cause you turned Bangladesh against. Whatever, i'm out. Damn f**king Indian. Long live Pakistan. Down with Hindustan. Haha! You guys pray to cows, statues, etc.
