    You can save time waiting for the new ball to become available by defining a custom match type in the Academy where the new ball is available after 1 over.

    Specifically, from iiAssassinXxii in the comments:
    Go to 'Cricket Academy' -> 'Match Type Creator' -> 'New' -> under the section titled 'Rules, look for the 'New Ball Available' option. Set that to 1. Go to the bottom of the page and save it. Then when you start a match, look for your game mode titled 'New' (unless you retitled it earlier). Easier if you have a second controller.
    If you play a custom match using your new match type, you'll get a prompt at the start of every over saying the new ball is available.

    Press cn_up and then cn_Y to accept the new ball. Take a wicket and the achievement will pop.

    New balls keep coming every over, so you'll have essentially unlimited chances

    PabloUK85Solution fails to mention that you need to press the left analogue stick in first, then Up on the D-Pad and Y to accept the new ball

    iiAssassinXxiiYou could do with adding in about recommended settings that should be used. The guide points you roughly in the right direction but needs modifying to be more helpful really.

    BODZ61I’ve gotten a wicket several times after taking a new ball but no achievement. What am I doing wrong?

    iiAssassinXxiiAre you doing it in the first over after receiving the new ball? Unless you changed the rules, you will probably have 6 balls in which to take the wicket.

    BODZ61I would get a wicket on the first delivery after getting new ball.

    guycarbGood solution but iiAssassinXxii is right, it would be helpful to update the guide with more information - I did as you said and as Assassin said and it worked like a charm!

    Yummy BaklavaI just switched the number of balls per over to 3' instead of '6', which helped me get the achievement a little quicker.

    Forza for SpeedIf using the 2 controller method, get the opposition to run them selves out by keep pressing X to run as you throw the ball at the wickets A
