Yeah loft to the leg side until you get 8 runs, then leave them as they'll spin away

Same with off spinners but when you get 8 runs off that over block the rest

Actually there is a really easy way to get fours off almost every shot from the off spinner (second guy you face).

Just aim behind and to the left of your batsmen, so the shot is going to the boundary straight at your back. Then use the A button and time the shot just before the ball bounces - it will get swept away for four runs nearly every time and is a safe hit.

I got all the runs I needed in two overs and then just blocked/left the rest.

Not trying to boast (Oh what the hell I am!) but I got 150 from the 6 overs. At first I was strugling the first 2/3 tries but after that I got the timing and smacked the bowlers!
