Ea Sports Cricket 07, one of the most popular cricket simulation game and loved by millions, hope you are one of them. 

The most loved task –  Batting. Everyone loves it, whether it’s meant to play on the ground with friends or on your PC in spare time. Almost everyone is hungry and desperate to bat, and for some, the format doesn’t matter, the bowler doesn’t matter, nor the conditions matters to some, they just love to hit the ball, and if you are one of them then heads off to you. 

Join an academy if you want to bat correctly to play cricket in real life and read this article if you want to learn to bat to play good cricket in cricket 07 game! I have shared my batting tips in this article, read, try, practice & master batting!

Note – These batting controls are for Keyboard users only! 
Here are the Function keys that you need to remember or say use while batting.

To Defend/Play Shots, drives – S/D/W
To hit the ball in directions – Arrows [UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT]
To take a run – D
To Cancel a run – A
To Dive while running to reach crease and save our-self from being out – W
To hit lofted shots (Boundaries) – SHIFT

First, let me clear the most important fundamental in batting – The ability to time the ball correctly called as Timing. If you don’t time the ball at the correct time then these controls are of no use, you’ll keep losing wickets every time. So I recommend you to practice to play the correct shots at the perfect time with the controls (provided below) in training nets.

These Batting Controls are for Broadcast Camera Angle. Make sure you have selected this camera angle to play the shots and control batting. Here’s a Screenshot of the Broadcast Camera Angle! This option is default in the game.

ADVANCED SHOTS – Use of Function key – ‘D’

If you want the batsman to use his feet and attack, then ‘D’ is the function key. When you hit the ball using this key with perfect timing then most of the time you’ll find a gap and you can easily score boundaries.

Use the Shift key to hit and score big runs. Here is all the Combination of keys that you should use to score quick runs in the last overs as well as in the powerplays.

Here, I have provided a few screenshots for better understanding.

 BackFoot Defence (W)

Sweep Shot (S+Up+Down Arrow)

 Front Foot Cover Drive (S+Down+Right Arrow – LHB)

Front Foot Lofted Six (Shift+S+Down+Right Arrow – RHB)

VIP – Make sure you press the right combination key at right time. For eg – If you want to play cover drive then press ”S+Left and Down arrow” at the same it. If you missed any key then you’ll play some other shot. Just keep in mind that you have to press all at once!

The above picture is for your guide. You can easily understand which shot goes in which direction and that too in professional cricket language.

Though you are level 1 or level 5 player, you need to know about these controls. So now you have all the keys and the right information. Train and enjoy the batting. If you are a beginner then practice first in nets and then go for any match or tournament.

Thanks, everyone, for being here. I have stated all the Function keys which I know, if I missed any, then let me know.
