    21 innings.

    I put a lot of focus into my batting.

    The medium difficulty setting is also a bit easy for me - might be time to ramp it up lol.

    Was coming off a bad streak of low score which saw my average drop 5 runs.

    The other thing was my batting partner scored a 100* and finished the over then the declaration happened. I would suggest in similar circumstances to get to 100 first.

    I have an awful habit of accidentally charging spin and getting stumped or caught at short leg with perfect timing on a big hit

    My first wicket was deflected off my hand to mid on

    I'm still on DB14 but I reckon I've only ever blocked 2-3 balls after I found the block option. I play a shot every ball cause I'm shit and have to accumulate off 1s, 2s & 3s for the most part. Unlike McCullum I fear the air.

    How do you block (ps4) after playing DB14 I suddenly couldnt block but instead play a defensive shot, and it's the same in Ashes?

    Same thing I guess is block or defensive shot....

    But yes it's called defensive shot on DB14.......

    What are your stats in career mode???

    In tests in career mode I have found if I play attackingly I works at first but not again and again...

    My strike rate was like 99 and now it's down to 85-86 per 100 balls and dropping...

    Avg is great though like 52.15 with 11 centuries in that including 3 doubles....

    When first playing DB14 I could block, then as time went on block became defensive shot which would be a hit looking for singles. Same thing in Ashes 17. Going through batting tutorial it ask me to hold R2 and move R stick in direction to Block, each time I do it it just plays a defensive shot for a single.

    Now if I switch controls to the other style Triangle is block and it works. I have no idea what' wrong?

    When I block/defensive shot in DB14 I rarely get a single......

    Not sure of my stats, mate. Where do I find them?

    Yeah I find the same. If you try bite off too much you'll get done. I often get up a head of steam against a slower/spinner bowler and tonk him back over his head clean as twice but after that I usually skew one and if I keep going I'll be out before his over is done.

    Well if you play career mode they have options at the bottom of screen and you see them from there...

    If you are just playing as a whole team then I'm not sure...

    If you haven't started up a career mode for DB14 I suggest you do....

    It'll be hard going the first 4-5 seasons in career mode but you get so much better over time..... playing 13th year career mode now...

    Like my first class avg started around 20 and you just keep building it and now it's about 51......

    I scored 112 off 262 balls against India in a test the other week.... took me 6-7 seasons in career mode to make it to test level by the way.....

    I bat no.4......

    Tests: 11 hundreds plus 41 fifties from 126 innings with 6400 odd runs at 52.15
    ODI's 12 hundreds 31 fifties from like 180 odd innings at 34.1 with 6000 something runs............ at one point I only averaged like 17 but I kept building it up...

    Any difference between Bradman 14 on PS3 or PS4? Some times the remastered versions seem to introduce more issues.

    Ashes puts the good bits of db 14 and 17 together

    I'd have bought 14 on ps4 if ashes sucked but it's great

    Imo, it's the best cricket game ever. It's really, really good.

    When does the career end in Ashes Cricket? Im currently in the year 2029 as a Lower Order Leg Spinner for Australia.

    Played 70 odd Tests and taken 380 wickets at an average of 38.80. Not sure how to keep my average down as I normally bowl 40 - 60 overs per match and the pitch is generally always grassy rather than dusty in Australia. Batting average of 32.

    I've sunk so many hours into this game it is not even funny and is actually borderline scary.

    Great purchase, most value i've got out of a game in a long time, probably since UFC 2
