    Very easy thanks to the saving system.
    If you don't know already you can save at anytime in a match. This involves taking 4 wickets from 4 balls in a row.

    So take a wicket - save.
    If you fail to take the next wicket on the next ball just reload the save & try again.

    Repeat until you have all 4.

    This is one of the most frustrating acheivements to get, but best to get in a test match and combine with 3 wickets, 4 wickets, 5 wickets 1 bowler, 10 wickets 1 bowler, bowl the opposition out in less than 10 overs, pair and king pair. That way, whilst frustrating, you can get 7 acheivements in one match.

    I played a test match with England versus Kenya (they seem to be the worst at 1 star), batted first to get the 100, 200, 300, 600 achievements before declaring.

    When bowling, I used Jimmy Anderson, attacking field 8, and the inswing ball (B).

    Now comes the complete luck bit. Bowling at the stumps is pointless if you ask me, as they always block it, so don't if you ask me.

    From where the cursor starts, I would move it right and down a bit, to try and get the batsmen to edge. I would try and bowl at top speed. Sometimes they edge it (get good at practising catching first in the fielding tutorial!), sometimes they whack it - god knows what changes, pot luck if you ask me.

    So what you need to do is get someone out in the first 2 balls of the over, save, bowl the next delivery....quit, load, bowl the same delivery.....quit, load, same delivery -oo he's edged it and out! - save, bowl the next delivery....so and and so on.

    As a guide, to get all the above acheivements took me about one hour - with a lot of loading. You will need some patience, but through the loading system, you can get it in the end!
