I have found the easiest way to get this is against slow off-spinners (India will use spinners almost exclusively so this may be easiest against them). Pick your empty space in the covers for each shot and make sure that a fielder is not going to get in the way of the ball.

When an off-spinner is bowling towards you, you can wait until the ball is almost at you and hold both LT and LB to make an approach shot. Doing this will net you a lot of power and decent accuracy.

Depending on the bounce, it may take a few attempts to get the timing right, but the ball should be around one pace in front of you, so you can swing forward and crack it at pace. As with all the achievements, you can use the save system to your advantage by saving after every shot and reloading if one doesn't quite make it. Broadcast view also makes this slightly easier for the timing.

Always use attacking shots (A) as loft shots will go for six. Getting perfect timing should net you four runs every time. If you need to get the 6x6 achievement, try the same method, only using a loft (B) shots instead.

This is easiest when you are going for the triple ton achievement as you will have plenty of overs to try for it with. The easiest way for me was to use the new Powerstick feature, with this you can still use loft shots but by only moving the LS a slight amount the ball ball will usually bounce once before clearing the boundary. This doesn't have to be in one over it can be the last three balls of one over and the first three of the next over.

Note: You are able to save the game after every shot so if you do not hit a four you can reload and try again.

The only thing I'd add to the earlier solutions is that this much easier to achieve at the Sydney, Australia ground than somewhere like Lords due to it having the shortest distance from the crease to the boundaries. Even 'poor' lofted shots will make the boundary here, so it's great for all batting achievements.
