To hit the ball in the Best Cricket Game Ever, all you have to do is tap anywhere on the screen at the right time. You only get one chance to tap, and your timing should be just before the ball gets to the batter.
Where you tap on the screen also plays a part in your shot selection. If you tap close to, or over the boundary, your shot selection will be upgraded (eg from Attacking to Over The Top). If you tap close to,
or on the pitch, your shot selection will be downgraded (eg from Attacking to Play For a Gap). You should change your shot selection if you pick up on a particular line and/or length. For example,
if the ball is on the leg side, you might like to tap near the boundary.
It probably takes about 5 to 10 games before you get the hang of tapping at the right time - although some people will be good at it straight away.
It takes quite a bit of game time to be able to judge the delivery length, and you'll never master it for a fast bowler. Until you do get good at it, your best option is to pick the batsman's mood to suit
the situation of the game, and tap in the middle of the field to avoid upgrading or downgrading your shot (although upgrading for a delivery down the leg side delivery can be a smart option).
The computer will try and trick you with faster and slower balls, so keep your head still, eye on the ball, and watch it closely.
If you mistime your tap, and have Batting Tips turned on in your settings, you will be given the opportunity for some batting practice. Here you will see where the red zone is to hit the ball in. Batting practice will
give you the opportunity to get your timing right, and also helps you to practise judging the length of the ball, so you can make smarter decisions with your shot selection.
