    Fairly easy when using the Save/Load technique. Firstly set the difficulty to easy as you'll be trying to hit alot of sixes on the way to this achievement. Best way for this, use one batsman to get to your 300 (IE Strauss) and the other batsman to hit ones (IE Cook) thus giving your big hitter the most chances to raise the points. Doesn't matter if your other batsman gets out accidentally as you'll only be using your main batsman for points. Now after each over, save your game. If your main batsman is bowled out, stop the game and load back up. You should get the achievement easily this way.

    Additional Notes: Alot of people think that batting against a weaker team makes it easier, this may not be the case. IF you've already played the ashes mode, then you'll be used to a fast paced bowling attack. I've seen alot of people get out from Kenya because they bat way too early due to the bowlers slow ability.

    The best way to get a couple of these acheivements (100, 200, 300, 600 test score) is to play a test match (i used England versus Kenya).

    Assuming you are familiar with the save option, play very aggressive, using only the B button to loft all shots, and aiming generally away from fielders positioned in the deep. For short balls, go back in your stance (LT) and hit to 2 or 9 o clock, and for full balls, come forward (LB) and hit it straight over the bowlers head. The key to pushing B is just before the ball lands on short balls, and a bit earlier than that for full balls.

    After about 10 overs your batsmen will be fearless, and the bowlers timid. I was able to average about 24-30 every over (saving every over), and as such managed to get the 100, 200, 300, 600 achievements in under 2 hours
