Achievement Guide

My first achievement guide, don't flame me if I make mistakes, just tell me what I can do to it

Master of the Blade 5G
Successfully complete all batting lessons and challenges.

Complete the lessons found under 'Legends Coaching' at the Menu, then do the challenges. Be aware that I think the last batting challenge is difficult.

Master with the Ball 5G
Successfully complete all of the bowling lessons and challenges.

See 'Master of the Blade', but this time for bowling

Dynamite in the Field 5G
Successfully complete all of the fielding lessons.

See 'Master of the Blade', but this time for fielding. There are no fielding challenges.

Raise the Bat 5G
Score 50 runs in an innings with a single batsman in single player or ranked online match.

See 'The Triple Ton'.

The Big 100 15G
Score 100 runs in an innings with a single batsman in single player or ranked online match.

See 'The Triple Ton'.

The Double Ton 30G
Score 200 runs in an innings with a single batsman in single player or ranked online match.

See 'The Triple Ton'.

The Triple Ton 40G
Score 300 runs in an innings with a single batsman in single player or ranked online match.

If you want this quickly, slog every ball (B), but time it correctly. You will get the 50, 100 and 200 run achievements on the way. Slog shots are risky though, ground shots are safer.

Ashes King with the Bat 50G
Score 500 runs in an Ashes Series with a single batsman in single player.

Does not have to be done in one game. There are 5 tests with two innings each, so you can spread the 500 runs between the ten innings. Must be done in one Series.

Power Hitting 10G
Hit 6 fours in 6 consecutive deliveries in an innings in single player or ranked online match.

Can be tricky. Easier done by pressing A and by going on the front foot or back foot. Does not have to be done in one over. Can be done at the end of one over and the start of the next.

The Blazing Blade 20G
Hit 6 sixes in 6 consecutive deliveries in an innings in single player or ranked online match.

Quite a hard achievement. Easiet done by hooking the ball on the back foot by pressing B. If pitched at your feet, hold LB and hit down the ground. Does not have to be done in one over.

The Hat Trick 30G
Take 3 wickets in a row from one bowler in a match in single player or ranked online match.

See 'The Top Hat Trick'.

The Top Hat Trick 40G
Take 4 wickets in a row from one bowler in a match in single player or ranked online match.

Try boosting the Hat Trick achievements, as it will be a lot easier. This will help if going for the 'Raise the Ball' achievement. Or you could swing the ball in from outside off stump, but I have not tried this. The way I got my wickets was by bouncing out the batsmen.

Raise the Ball 20G
Take 5 wickets in an innings with a single bowler in single player or ranked online match.

Just pick one bowler and get 5 wickets in one innings with him. I find this easier with a spin bowler, as there is a better chance of a catch.

If You Want Something Done Right 75G
Take 10 wickets in an innings with a single bowler in single player or ranked online match.

Very easy to get by boosting. Just choose one bowler and bowl it straight at the stumps. Make sure that you don't get any wickets with a second bowler as there will be an over in between the overs that your chosen bowler will bowl.

Nought and Nought 20G
Dismiss a batsman for a duck twice in a Test Match in single player or ranked online match.

Must be done in a test match. If you get about 3 or 4 batsmen out for nought then it increases your chances of the achievement. I don't think run outs count.

King Pair 40G
Dismiss a batsman for a golden duck twice in a Test Match in single player or ranked online match.

Same as the 'Nought and Nought' but must be done on the batsmen's first ball, quite challenging, but try boosting for this achievement. I don't think run outs count.

Ashes Destroyer 50G
Take 40 wickets in an Ashes series with a single bowler in single player.

Go into Ashes mode and choose two bowlers as it will make this easier. I did this with James Anderson and Graeme Swann, and they both got at least 40 wickets each. Once achieved you can use other bowlers, but use two bowlers until you get it.

Demolition with the Ball 40G
Bowl the opponent out in 10 overs or less in single player or ranked online match.

Easier done by boosting, as it is harder to get the CPU out in less than ten overs.

ODI Domination 40G
Score 300 runs or more in an innings of an ODI Match in single player or ranked online match.

Easily done quickly if you slog every ball. Shouldn't take too long. You do have limited overs to do this in however.

Test Match Domination 50G
Score 600 runs or more in an innings of a Test Match in single player or ranked online match.

Do this quickly by slogging the ball. Must be done in one innings and cannot be split between the two innings. You have unlimited overs to do this in.

Ten Wicket Defeat 75G
Win a Test Match by 10 wickets in single player or ranked online match.

The easiest way to do this is to bowl you opponent out for a low score, then bat till you reach about 20-30 runs more than your opponents score. Bowl your opponents out for another low score, and achieve the target without losing a wicket.

Innings Defeat 75G
Win a Test Match by an innings or more in single player or ranked online match.

Easier than it looks. Bat first and post a huge score. Bowl your opponents out for a low score. Enforce the follow on (if available, if not then it will not work) and bowl them out again, and the achievement is yours.

ODI Champions 75G
Win a full-length ODI Tournament in single player.

Go to 'Play Now' > One Day International, change the settings to easy, Tournament and 5 overs. Win matches (3 of them) and achievement unlocked.

20 Over Champions 75G
Win a full-length 20 Over Tournament in single player.

Same as 'ODI Champions but choose 20 Over instead of One Day. Win the 3 matches and the achievement is yours.

Ashes Champions 100G
Win an Ashes series in single player.

Just win the Ashes in the Ashes Game mode. All you need to do is win 3 tests and you win the series. Note that you must complete all 5 test matches to unlock the achievement.


Note that if going for the 6x4, 6x6, and the bowling achievements you can save the game at any time and reload so you get the achievements

You may want to say with the Triple Ton, to make sure you know the risk of slogging every ball.
Trust me, trying to hit 6 6's on Test Difficulty, in Lara, resulted in 8 wickets been lost.

Not the smartest thing I've done, but it was still damn good fun.

Also, Power Hitting can be reached through slogging, but ground shots are safer ;D

Oh and with the wicket achievements, put the ball on off stump swinging into the batsman, right on the crease line. 8 times out of 10 you'll get the wicket.

Hope I helped you out

Only way it's two player is over Xbox LIVE.
Split Screen wouldn't work, and you can boost Achievements over LIVE.

Hope I helped ;D

Just got my 1000 (second to it i believe), anyways rather than boosting online there is the option to save before every ball if you pause. I got the "top hat trick ach by getting one wicket then saving, then reloading if i didn't get a wicket next ball, and rinse and repeat till you have 4 wickets in 4 balls. ach still unlocked. can also be done for batting by saving so if you get out you on 299 you ca just reload.

just like to add that when going for the 6 fours and 6 six's achievement once you get a six for a four you can save your game and if you miss the next shot, reload your save game and try again, thats how i got it, probably want to add this into the guide.

just wandering what the difficulty rating for the achievements are to get to 1000, out of 10 for those who had made it, and how long roughly will it take?

Some are easy, some (like the 6x4, 6x6 and the bowling achievements) are a bit more difficult

shouldn't take too long though

i did it in 2 1/2 days, whilst playing other games aswell

I would say about 10-15 hours if you just go for the achievements, and difficulty probably 2/10 if you use the save method found here.

Lightbulb

If going for the 6 6's achievement u can always start a odi match and pick a good batting team and a poor bowling team (I used Bangladesh) and set their team to have 2 or more spinners. Normally they will bowl a lot at the start so advance down the pitch time a lofted shot good or perfect and it should result in a 6. Just keep doing that until u ave the achievement voilą

I would rent.
Most of the achievements can be done in an online game. So if you get a friend then you can polish off alot of score right there (especially the tricky bowling cheevos).
You can also save your progress after each shot for the achievements that can only be done in single player.
The more time consuming ones are the single player Ashes achievements. It took me around 8 hours to win the Ashes but you can get a lot of your gamerpoints when playing through an Ashes series.
I would also recommend getting used to batting and bowling as this will help you complete the game quicker.
.
I apologise for the green text. Cant change it!

Does the achievement for winning the Ashes series unlock once you go 3-0 up or when you complete the series?

Demolition with the Ball 40G
Bowl the opponent out in 10 overs or less in single player or ranked online match.

Easier done by boosting, as it is harder to get the CPU out in less than ten overs.



Found another way of achieving this one, I took my 9th wicket with the 5th ball of the 9th over, so i just kept bowling NOBALLS until i got a run out, didn't take too long, spose in theory you could do this for all ten wickets technically get all ten wickets in first over

A lot of your guide isn't really that helpful if I'm honest... "Try boosting" isn't good advice.

Ten Wicket Defeat 75G
Win a Test Match by 10 wickets in single player or ranked online match.

The easiest way to do this is to bowl you opponent out for a low score, then bat till you reach about 20-30 runs more than your opponents score. Bowl your opponents out for another low score, and achieve the target without losing a wicket.


can do this in 2 minutes if you're boosting.

The person getting the achievement must bowl/field first

start the game, have the batting team declare (start>tactics>declare) then do exactly the same for your teams first innings. start of the third session you should bowl a wide ball to enable the batting team to declare (can't declare on 0 in second innings) then repeat again for the final innings with the bowler simply bowling 2 very wide balls to ensure there is no chance of you losing a wicket.

if u get the cheevo for the win a test match by more than 1 innings, wont the other 1 unlock for winning by 10 wickets or MORE?

just seems logical. obviously wouldnt work the other way round.

No because if someone wins by 10 wickets that means that both teams have had two innings each... winning by an innings and "x" runs means that one team has only had one innings. I know what you're saying, but it's just following the laws of cricket.

Test isn't unlimited time :P It may as well be in the game though XD Also bowling opponents out in 10 overs is an easy achievement. Just play on easy and bowl the 10 with Swann and Panesar (England obviously.) If you have your field set to attacking off spin 3 then you should have no problems. Also I'd recommend putting alternatives to boosting in all your achievements for people that don't have that option available to them.

10 wickets isn't all that hard if you bowl with a spinner and a fast bowler. Spinner takes the wickets and the fast bowler just pings them down full outside off stump. Drop any catches off the quick bowler on purpose.
