I earned the Legend Bowler and Legend Batsman achievements purely through playing in Career Mode, and at the end of it I had about 30 catches - presumably all from caught and bowleds. If your career player is credited with a catch while simulating, that doesn't count.

Important Note: make sure you do not have automatic fielding turned on
I used semi-assisted to make life a little easier.

The easiest way to check your progress is to browse the leaderboards in the Awards and Stats section, find your own gamertag and press A to 'View Stats'.

I found that the fastest way to grind this out was to play custom Five5 matches, Australia vs Russia. I don't think the ground choice matters, but the conditions do. You want a hard pitch so that edges carry, heavy cracks and quick wear can't hurt either.

Choosing Five5 makes the wickets come a lot faster, and after some practice you'll find it plenty of time to take all 10.

You can pick whatever teams you want, but good bowlers vs bad batsman will make your life easier. The player ratings are all over the place - find a combination that works for you. I changed the default line-ups so that I had 5 fast bowlers available for Australia.

My strategy was just to bowl outswingers cn_LSul on a good length cn_A constantly.

I found that the Fast Attack 04 field was the ideal preset. Some edges go through point, but the majority end up with the keeper or slips. Catches are often spooned to mid off, mid on or cover as well.

In terms of actually completing the catch, you're supposed to move the right stick towards the ball. In the slips, I found the most consistent method was to point it at the batsman. Assuming the broadcast camera behind the bowler is being used, that's cn_RSdr for right hand batsmen and cn_RSdl for lefties.

Games would be done in 10-15 minutes if you simulate the batting (or forfeit). That's 8+ hours of grinding if you have to get through the whole 500.
