    The easist way to do this achievement I found was to play a Test match. Put the difficulty on easy.

    Make sure you win the toss & put the opposing team into bat. Bowl them out as quickly as possible so your batting session comes into play.

    Overtake the opposing teams score when batting but not by loads. When your happy you have a lead they can catch let them bowl you out.

    They will be batting again. Right here comes the important part...... don't bowl them out before they overtake your score. If you do that the match is over with you having won by an innings instead. Once they have reached & passed your score finish them off.

    Your now back in batting. Check what your target is & reach it without losing a wicket. The save system is very helpful for this. Match over - you won by 10 wickets.

    Here is my scorecard for when I got the achievement.

    England (me) won the toss.
    Australia (com) batted first.

    Aussie 1st innings 74/10.
    England 1st innings 105/10.

    This meant I had to let Austraila get at least 32 runs to pass my score so I could bat again.
    I had them at 29/9 so I just played no balls (gives them 1 run with out being bowled out) until they passed my score.

    Aussie 2nd innings 35/10.

    I batted again needed just 3 runs without losing a wicket to get the achievement.

    I hope this explantion helps you.
